A novel photoinduced bromination of benzylsilanes is reported. This reaction undergoes smoothly under UV irradiation at room temperature via two key steps: C-Si bond cleavage and subsequent bromination, which presents a new protocol to the synthesis of benzyl bromides. In addition, a possible mechanism of this reaction is proposed.
