New alkoxysilylmethylsilatranes MePhROSiCH2 Si(OCH2CH23N have been obtained from the reaction of silylmethylsilatrane MePhHSiCH2Si(OCH2CH2)3N with alcohols in the presence of H2PtCl6·6H2O. Methylphenylsilylmethylsilatrane (1) reacted with H2O in the presence of Pd to give methylphenyl(silatranylmethylsilanol (6 which was converted to siloxane (7) and germoxane (8). The molecular structures of the silatrane 1 and silanol 6 have been determined by an X-ray diffraction study which revealed the presence of intramolecular OH ... O bond in the latter.
