A new class of multidentate "scorpionate" ligands is readily obtained from the reactions of methimazole with a range of organochlorosilanes. A recurrent structural feature to emerge is the intramolecular S-capping of the tetrahedral inner Si coordination spheres, the nature of which is responsive to the substitution pattern at silicon.
