Abstract

A linear Si-Hg-Hg-Si arrangement and a Hg-Hg distance of 265.69 pm are exhibited by the first two-coordinate, dinuclear σ-bonded organomercury(I) compound 1. It was formed unexpectedly in the reaction of two equivalents of the silane (Me3SiMe2Si)3SiH with tBu2Hg. In contrast if the reagents are allowed to react in a 1:1 ratio the expected mercury(II) compound (Me3SiMe2Si)3SiHgtBu is obtained.
