Hexamethyldisilane is the organosilicon compound with the formula Si2(CH3)6, abbreviated Si2Me6. It is a colourless liquid, soluble in organic solvents.
The Si-Si bond in hexamethyldisilane is cleaved by strong nucleophiles and electrophiles. Alkyl lithium compounds react as follows:
+ RLi → RSiMe3
Iodine gives trimethylsilyl iodide.
→ 2 SiMe3
