Abstract: The title compound, C21H23NSi, was synthesized by Sonogashira-type reaction of 1-ethyl-3-iodo-2-phenyl-1H-indole with trimethylsilylacetylene. The indole ring system is nearly planar [maximum atomic deviation = 0.0244 (15) Å] and is oriented at a dihedral angle of 51.48 (4)° with respect to the phenyl ring. The supramolecular aggregation is completed by weak C-H...[pi] interactions of the methylene and phenyl groups with the benzene and pyrrole rings of the indole ring system. The methyl groups of the trimethylsilyl unit are equally disordered over two sets of sites.
