|Trimethychlorosilane (TMCS) is used to catalyze difficult to silylate compounds. This reagent is commonly used to create trimethylsilyl esters from organic acids. TMCS can be used in addition to MSTFA to form derivatives with hindered hydroxyl groups that won't ordinarily react with MSTFA (CovaChem 12104)
