The first pyrazolylborate complex of silicon, [Ph2B(pz)2]2SiCl2, has been prepared via the reaction of K[Ph2B(pz)2] with SiCl4. The structure of this complex has been determined by X-ray crystallography. The bis(pyrazolyl)borate ligand behaves in a bidentate fashion and the silicon adopts a distorted octahedral geometry.
