With the formula Si(CH3)4, Tetramethylsilane (abbreviated as TMS) is an organosilicon compound. Like all silanes, the TMS framework is tetrahedral. It is a building block in organometallic chemistry but also finds use in diverse niche applications. It can be used as a safe organosilane source in chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of SiC films. In chemical vapor deposition, TMS is the precursor to silicon dioxide or silicon carbide, depending on the deposition conditions.
