Abstract

Geminal bis(silyl) compounds, a special type of organosilane, are attractive synthons because of their great potential for bifunctional reactivity. This article outlines our recent efforts to develop a practical method to synthesize geminal bis(silane) compounds and to explore their interesting bifunctionality.
