Triphenylsilane acts as a reactant or reagent for catalytic hydrogen deuterium exchange reactions of silanes, to be oxidized by carbon nanotube-gold nanohybrids, for hydrolysis by ruthenium complexes, for hydrosilylation to produce enolsilanes, for synthesis of bromosilanes, for ozone oxidation of silyl-alkenes for synthesis of α-O-silylated acyloin derivatives. It is used to synthesize hydrido silyl and bis(silyl) bis(imidazolinylidene) nickel complexes.
