The mixed heteroadamantanes Si6Ge4 and Si6Sn4 are readily accessible from Me2ECl2/Si2Cl6/cat. Cl– (4 × EMe2, 2 × SiCl2, 4 × Si–SiCl3 vertices; E = Ge, Sn). Different from Si6Ge4, two skeletal isomers are formed in the case of Si6Sn4. Site-selective SiCl3-methylation of Si6Ge4 was achieved, leaving the SiCl2 groups untouched.
