UPS Study of Spirosilane

Igor Novak, Branka Kovac

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The electronic structure of 2,7-dimethyl-5-silaspiro[4,4]nona-2,7-diene has been investigated byUV photoelectron spectroscopy (UPS). The analysis of the spectra has been performed by DFT andROVGF calculations and comparison with the UPS spectra of related compounds. An unusual '-orbitaldegeneracy in this molecule of C2-symmetry was observed. The spiroconjugation is quenched,and the reasons are discussed
