A new pseudopolymorph of perchlorinated neo­penta­silane: the benzene monosolvate Si(SiCl3)4·C6H6

  • A new pseudopolymorph of dodeca­chloro­penta­silane, namely a benzene monosolvate, Si5Cl12·C6H6, is described. There are two half mol­ecules of each kind in the asymmetric unit. Both Si5Cl12 mol­ecules are completed by crystallographic twofold symmetry. One of the benzene mol­ecules is located on a twofold rotation axis with two C—H groups located on this rotation axis. The second benzene mol­ecule has all atoms on a general position: it is disordered over two equally occupied orientations. No directional inter­actions beyond normal van der Waals contacts occur in the crystal.
