An attempt was made to synthesize diethyl 7-dimethylsilabicyclo [2.2.1) hepta-2,5-dione-l,4-dioate by reacting dimethyldichlorosilane with the dianion of 1,4-dicarbethoxy- 2,5-cyclohexadione. The products formed in the reaction were silicones and 0-silylated polymeric materials. If any of the desired product was formed, it was not detected.
