The title compound, tetra­kis[3,5-bis­(trifluoro­meth­yl)phen­yl]silane (SiAr'''4, C32H12F24Si), is a minor product from the reaction of silicon(IV) bromide with lithia­ted 1,3-bis­(trifluoro­meth­yl)benzene (Ar'H). The structure crystallizes with two half-mol­ecules in the asymmetric unit, with each central Si atom positioned on a twofold axis in a pseudo-tetra­hedral environment, with Si-C bond lengths in the range 1.873 (3)-1.879 (3) Å.
