The nitration of 1-(triisopropylsilyl)-1H-pyrrole leads to a mixt. of products following partial acid cleavage of the triisopropylsilyl protecting group. Structural detn. showed the isolated products to be 3-nitro-1-(triisopropylsilyl)-1H-pyrrole, C13H24N2O2Si (I), and 2,4-dinitropyrrole. In the solid state, I exists as discrete mols. with only weak C-H...nitro H bonds between them. Crystallog. data are given.
