Defined crystalline amino-substituted organosilanes were prepared by reaction of N-methylaniline with 1,1,2,2-tetrachlorodimethyldisilane and other chloroorganosilanes. The X-ray structure analyses of 1,2-dichloro-1,2-bis(N-methyl-anilino)dimethyldisilane (1), 1-chloro-1,2,2-tris(N-methylanilino)dimethyldisilane (2) and tetrakis(N-methylanilino)-1,2-dimethyldisilane (3) were performed. The absolute structure of 1 was determined by crystallographic methods. 1,2-Dichloro -1,2-bis(N-methylanilino)dimethyldisilane (1) is a useful reagent for the preparation of a variety of other aminoorganodisilanes.
