The reaction of the disilylene [{PhC(NBut)2}Si] 2 (1) with 1 equiv of bromine in toluene afforded novel monomeric bromosilylene [{PhC(NBut)2}SiBr] (2). The result shows that the SiI-SiI bond in 1 was cleaved by bromine. An X-ray structure of compound 2 has been determined. © 2009 American Chemical Society.
