Abstract

The reaction of methanol with silicon was studied using various copper compounds other than the halides. Copper(II) acetate and copper(I) oxide gave high silicon conversions (82%) though the selectivities for trimethoxysilane were low (<19%). The selectivity was appreciably improved by addition of a small amount of thiophene or propyl chloride to the methanol feed.
