Abstract : The research can be divided into 4 main areas: 1) Mechanisms and Kinetics of the Decompositions of Silane and Organosubstituted Monosilanes, and of Disilane and Organosubstituted Disilanes. 2) Relative Rate Kinetics of the Trapping Reactions of SiH2 with Ethylene, Acetylene, Butadiene, Methanol, Silane and 1-butene. 3) Mechanisms and Kinetics of the Isomerizations and Decompositions of Organosilylenes. 4) From the above studies, we were able to propose a general reaction mechanism for carbosilane production from the decomposition of dimethylsilane. Keywords: Silane, Organosubstituted Mono and Disilanes, Silylene, Organosubstituted silylenes.
