Abstract

In the direct synthesis of silicon compounds by reactions of elemental silicon with methyl chloride, methanol and hydrogen chloride, silylene formed on surface of silicon grains during the reaction is an intermediate. The reaction of surface silylene with a variety of unsaturated hydrocarbons provides new direct synthesis of organosilanes. In the direct synthesis of methylchlorogermanes from elemental germanium, surface germylene is not an intermediate, while tetrachlorogermane is synthesized by the direct reaction of germanium with hydrogen chloride via dichlorogermylene intermediate. Various unsaturated hydrocarbons or organic chlorides added to the system of tetrachlorogermane synthesis give new methods for the synthesis of organogermanes.
