A highly thermally stable silylenoid, trisyl(aminomethylphenyl)silylenoid (2) was synthesized from the reaction of dimethylaminomethylphenyllithium with a bromosilylenoid, 1. Silylenoid 2 reacted with electrophiles to give the corresponding products, but did not react with alkyllithiums as a nucleophile.
