Results and Discussion Figure 4. The formation of silabenzenes through the [1,3]-Si→O substituent shift. Bent’s rule : atomic s character tends to concentrate in orbitals that are directed toward electropositive groups and atomic p character tends to concentrate in orbitals that are directed toward electronegative groups.

Conclusion 1. Aromaticity is not the only driving force for the reaction. 2. Bent‘s rule plays an important role in formation of the silabenzene. 3. Our findings could be a useful guide to the synthesis of silabenzenes.
