Abstract / Full Text

Organofluoric compounds are electrolyzed in a diaphragmless cell filled with aprotic solvent containing trimethylchlorosilane. The following substances are trimethylsilylated in the electrolysis: C6F6, C6F5CI, C6F5H, C6F5CF3, C5F5N, CFC1=CFC1, and CF2=CFBr, with the introduction of one trimethylsilyl group. The silylation mechanism is established. In some case, the silylation products’ yield is increased on a copper cathode.
