Due to its strong electrophilic character sulfur trioxide can be inserted in bonds between carbon and the elements silicium, germanium, tin and lead. This reaction takes place under very mild conditions and in general yields organometallic derivatives of sulfonic acids, R3MOSO2R (M = Si, Ge, Sn and Pb; R = alkyl or aryl). Under suitable conditions organometal sulfates and sulfonic acid anhydrides, (R3MO)2SO2 and RSO2OSO2R, can be detected as products of a side-reaction. The properties of the obtained products are described and the reaction mechanism is discussed.
