Preparation of (Z,Z,Z)-9,12,15-octadecatrienyltrichlorosilane (2) by the reaction of the corresponding Grignard reagent with SiCl4 is described. The novel compound of the type RSiX3, useful for various organometallic applications and with the ability to form close-packed ordered monolayers chemically bonded to the surface, was thoroughly characterized by spectral analysis.

Keywords: n-Alkatrienyltrichlorosilane; (Z,Z,Z)-9,12,15-Octadecatrienyltrichlorosilane.
