Fourier analysis of potential curves of internal rotation around the C-X bond in α-carbofunctional organosilicon compounds of the type Y-CH2-X (X = NH2, OH; Y = SiH3, Si(CH3)3) has been used to study the character of intramolecular interactions in relation to the mechanism of the so-called α-effect. The results obtained are in accordance with previous conclusions based on the analysis of orbital correlation diagrams.
