Abstract: The molecule in the structure of the title compound, C34H60Si4, lies on a twofold rotation axis that passes through the two Si atoms, resulting in a planar cyclotetrasilane ring. The dihedral angle between the cyclotetrasilane ring and the phenyl ring is 68.20 (5)°. The Si-Si bonds [2.4404 (8) and 2.4576 (8) Å] are longer than a standard Si-Si bond (2.34 Å) and the C-Si-C bond angle [97.07 (14)°] of the phenyl-substituted Si atom is smaller than the tetrahedral bond angle (109.5°). These long bonds and small bond angle are favorable for reducing the steric hindrance among the bulky substituents.
