Abstract : Three tetraaryldisilenes and two dialkyldiaryldisilenes were investigated by cyclic voltammetry, all undergoing irreversible oxidation and reduction. The oxidation potentials were similar for all five compounds, but the reduction potentials were lower for the tetraaryldisilenes than for the dialkyldiaryldisilenes.
