Diastereomeric disiloxane-1,3-diols, 1, with two asymmetric silicon centers and intramolecular coordination arms were synthesized and separated manually. They show distinguishing structural features such as a linear or bent Si-O-Si skeleton, a short Si-O bond length, and strong intramolecular hydrogen bonding. A trace of water induced the diastreomeric isomerization of 1 under noncatalytic conditions, while the anhydrous disiloxane-1,3-diols were stereochemically stable.
