Abstract

The synthesis of trialkylsilyl halide involving the treatment of the mixture of di-trialkylsilyl oxide and concentrated sulfuric acid with sodium halide or ammonium halide is known as the Flood reaction. The study presents the mechanism for the synthesis of trimethylsilyl halide. This reaction has wide application in synthesis of trialkyl halides.
