Bismuth(iii) TEMPOxide compounds have been synthesized from the coupling of Bi(ii) species with the TEMPO˙ radical. The steric profile of the supporting bis(amido)disiloxane ligand promotes different fluxional behaviour in solution, and DFT calculations suggest variation in the Bi-O bond character. These compounds are active catalysts for oxidative coupling of TEMPO and silane substrates, believed to proceed via metathesis of Bi-O and Si-H bonds followed by decomposition of bismuth-hydride intermediate species.
