The determination of the solution acidity of tris(trimethylsilyl)silane was performed. The acidity of (Me3Si)3SiH was determined in diethyl ether solution by reactions of (Me3Si)3SiLi·3THF with a series of C-H acids. It was found that (Me3Si)3SiH and 9-phenylxanthyllithium formed an equilibrium mixture in diethyl ether solution.
