Various reactions of silicon compounds are discussed briefly, according to the type of reaction, especially paying attention to stereochemical aspect of the reaction. Synthesis of polymers with well-controlled structure is described taking advantage of characteristic reactivity and stereochemistry of silicon compounds.
