Beyond silanol: A branched siloxane oligomer bearing terminal dialkoxysilyl groups was nonhydrolytically synthesized by direct alkoxysilylation of a tetraalkoxysilane with a chlorodialkoxysilane in the presence of the Lewis acid BiCl3 (see scheme). The reaction proceeds without the formation of intermediate silanol groups, and provides a selective route for siloxane-based oligomers.
