Phenylsilatrane is a convulsant chemical which has been used as a rodenticide. [1][2] Phenylsilatrane and some of its analogs with 4-substituents of H, CH3, Cl, Br, and C CSi(CH3)3 are highly toxic to mice. They have been observed in the laboratory to inhibit the (35)S-tert-butylbicyclophosphorothionate or TBPS binding site (GABA-gated chloride channel) of mouse brain membranes. [3]
