• The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C10H20I2Si2, contains two half-molecules. Both complete molecules are generated by crystallographic inversion centers located at the mid-points of the central C-C single bonds; the butadiene groups are planar, with a trans conformation about the central C-C bond. The molecules show short intramolecular H...I contacts of 2.89 and 2.92 Å. The crystal packing shows no short intermolecular contacts. Key indicators: single-crystal X-ray study; T = 155 K; mean σ(C–C) = 0.002 Å ; R factor = 0.021; wR factor = 0.059; data-to-parameter ratio = 43.6.
