Reactions of dioxolanes with excess Me3SiCH2MgCl in refluxing benzene yield the corresponding geminal disilylmethylation products in moderate to good yields. Intermediate alkoxy alcohol (11) was isolated. Similar reactions with ketals give the corresponding olefins and/or allylsilanes depending on the nature of the starting materials.
