Abstract : The report investigates a new type of stable silicon compounds involving 2,2'-bipyridyl. This was done to ascertain the potential of these compounds as the basis for a new class of silicon polymers. The new compounds are paramagnetic as epr and magnetic susceptibilities indicate. Syntheses, properties, structure, bonding, stabilities, and reactions are discussed for these complexes in which radical anions appear to act as ligands.
