1994 Main Group Metal Chemistry  
Several stable metallaalkenes ^M=C'and metallaphosphenes -M=P-(M : Ge, Sn) have been synthesized since 1985, mainly by reaction of tert-butyllithium with halogenometallaalkanes or halogenometallaphosphines. Some examples of their high reactivity, particularly toward protic reagents and carbonyl compounds (aldehydes, ketones, α,β-ethylenic aldehydes), as well as their thermolysis and dimerization, are described, and compared to the chemical behaviour of other doubly-bonded main group elements.
