The reaction of triphenylethoxysilane with acetyl or benzoyl iodide led to the formation of triphenyliodosilane and ethyl ester of the corresponding carboxylic acid. Triphenyliodosilane formed also in the reaction of triphenylsilanol with benzoyl iodide. These reactions comprise the new simplest method of preparation of the triphenyliodosilane (yield over 60%). The reaction product of triphenylhydroxysilane and acetyl iodide is triphenylacetoxysilane. The reactions of the studied acyl iodides with triphenylhydroxysilane is the first example of different regioselectivity of acetyl iodide and benzoyl iodide in reactions with organic and organoelemental compounds.
