Synthesis of triorganylchlorosilanes by catalytic reaction of triorganylsilanes with chlorobenzene


A study was made of the reaction for replacing the hydrogen atom, attached to the silicon in triorganylsilanes, by the chlorine atom when reaction is with chlorobenzene in the presence of colloidal nickel as the catalyst. A probable scheme of the reaction mechanism is given.
