Siloxide ions undergo O/S exchange reactions with suitable sulfur-containing neutrals, e.g. H3SiO-+CS2 → H3SiS-+COS. Silamide ions similarly undergo NR/O and NR/S exchange reactions together with nucleophilic displacement reactions, e.g. Me3SiNMe + CO2 → Me3SiO-+MeNCO →No simple correlation between rate and mechanism is observed for all the studied reactions.
