The first synthesis of monooxadisilole- and bisoxadisilole-fused isoindoles and their [4+2]-cycloaddition reactions are reported. Deprotection of the cycloadducts leads to the formation of oxadisilole-fused benzoquinones. The structure of the bisoxadisilole-fused isoindole (2b) is confirmed by X-ray analysis.
