Anons, I'm considering attempting to synthesize more complex silicon-based compounds that would mimic organic compounds.

Would it be possible?
I'm considering a setting completely devoid of carbon.
Should I use sulfuric acid or methanol as the primary solvent?
I'm inclined to use sulfuric acid.

Do you think other, more smarter people haven't already tried?

You basically cannot do it .

On Earth you can make simple compounds like a humanoid love doll but that is about it. Just look at the electron surface. Too much shit in the way for synthetic reactions that can result in stable molecular species.

What exactly are you trying to do? Diamond and graphene are already a thing.

Use whatever doesn't kill you.
