Disilanes are widely utilized in the manufacture of photovoltaic devices (e.g. silicon wafers, thin film transistors, solar cells) via chemical vapor deposition of amorphous silicon, which is the deposition product of thermally decomposed disilanes. Disilanes are also being utilized in the synthesis of allylsilanes via silyl nucleophilic substitution reactions with allylic carbonates under micellar catalytic conditions. The mildness of the reaction conditions in H2O-based media allows for applications in one-pot synthesis sequences.
