The interaction between silyl groups and acetylenes is studied using gas phase electron diffraction, ab initio quantum chemical calculations, and qualitative chemical reasoning. For brevity, we limit our attention to trimethylsilylacetylene and 1,2-bis(trimethylsilyl)acetylene and related silylated and methylated acetylenes.
