Abstract: The title compound, C62H78N4P4Se2Si4·2C5H12, is made up of two [SeC(PPh2NSiMe3)(PPh2NHSiMe3)] units related by an inversion center situated at the mid-point of the diselenide bond. It crystallized with two disordered molecules of pentane used as solvent of crystallization. It is a rare example of an antiperiplanar diselenide and exhibits a long Se-Se bond of 2.4717 (8) Å. The Se-C bond length of 1.876 (5) Å is short in comparison with the range of values found for other diselenides (1.91-1.97 Å). The molecule exhibits two intramolecular N-HN hydrogen bonds. In the crystal, there are no significant intermolecular interactions present. One of the Me3Si- groups is disordered over two positions with a refined occupancy ratio of 0.708 (8):0.292 (8). The contribution of the disordered solvent to the scattering was removed with the SQUEEZE option of PLATON [Spek (2009). Acta Cryst. D65, 148-155]. The solvent contribution has been included in the reported molecular weight and density.
