The absolute entropies and free energy functions between 200°K and 900°K for the singlet state of silene (1SiH2) have been calculated using recently established molecular parameters. Similar calculations have been performed for silyl (SiH3) using recently measured parameters and a reasonable estimate of the SiH bond length. These data allow estimation of the equilibrium constants of the reactions {A figure is presented}{A figure is presented} The implications of the above data with respect to the mechanism of monosilane pyrolysis are outlined.
