The reaction of tetramethylsilane with boron tribromide in deuterochloroform in ambient temperature or at 40°C led to bromotrimethylsilane (3) and to dibromomethylborane (4). Identity of products was confirmed by NMR spectroscopy. Analogical reaction carried out in 1,3-dichloropropane allowed to separate products of the reaction and to obtain them in 68% and 59% yields respectively.
