The π component of the SiN bond in silylamines has little if any influence on their structure—this was established from the X‐ray structures of the silylamines 1–3. The structural analyses show that the coordination at the nitrogen centers is pyramidal rather than planar and that the SiN distances are essentially invariant. Mes = 2,4,6‐Me3C6H2, Triph = 2,4,6‐Ph3C6H2. (Formula Presented.)
