The 3,3-dimethyl-3-silathiane molecule was studied by gas-phase electron diffraction and vibrational spectroscopy. The initial geometrical parameters and the force field were calculated by the B3LYP/6-311+G** method; the vibrational amplitudes of atomic pairs and vibrational corrections were calculated using the scaled B3LYP/6-311+G** force field. The molecular conformation was found to be a distorted chair with structural parameters close to the expected ones.
