Singlet organosilylenes with a lone pair and an emptyp orbital are isolobal to trivalent borane if a B-H is equated to the lone pair on Si. Using this analogy, a particular isomer of CSi2H2 (2̲4̲) is predicted to be a stable structure. MNDO calculations on 2̲4̲ and many of its possible isomers suggest that 2̲4̲ is at global minimum on the potential energy surface of CSi2H2. Ab initio calculations using a, minimal STO-3G basis set, on some selected structures also support these results.
