How to determine order of bond angle of Me-O-Me, H3Si-O-SiH3 and (ph)3Si-O-Si(Ph) ?

 (1) Oxygen of Me-O-Me is sp3 hybridised so C-O-C bond angle is more than 109’28” approx 110” due to crowding of methyl group.

(2) In disilyl ether , oxygen is Sp2 hybridised and planer due to back bonding between oxygen and silicon atom.  In this back bonding lone pair of oxygen atom donate to the vacant d orbital of silicon atom  due to this fact bond lengths of Si-O is decrease and  increases (approx 140”).

(3) In (Ph)3Si-O-Si(Ph)3  compounds Si-O-Si bond angle is Approx 180 due to back bonding and hybridisation is Sp.
