A simple, one-pot, and high-yielding synthesis of 1,3-diphenyldisiloxane is presented. The preparation of similar symmetrical disiloxane materials is also accomplished with this same protocol. This mechano-chemical procedure is efficient and highly scalable, furnishing a convenient route to hydrido-disiloxanes from widely accessible commercially available silanes.
