An optimum synthetic condition was studied for the MCS used as a silicone monomer. The contact mixture was made from the four component catalyst system($CuCl/ZnCl_2/Sn/Cd$) and silicon particles. The contact mass was used for a series of experiments with methyl chloride, which were designed and done to explore the optimum condition for MCS synthesis by an experimental design method. The optimum temperature and MeCl flow rate, which were obtained using 50g contact mass at 60rpm and 1 atm, were in the range of $300-305^{\circ}C$ and of 70-80ccm. Also a continuous run was performed to confirm the conditions. The results showed that the average reaction rate and selectivity were 170(g-MCS/hr.kg-Si) and 0.05 respectively at 67% conversion of MeCl and 92% silicon utilization rate. Also the parameters of overall reaction rate equation and a total pressure were estimated on the basis of the results of the continuous run.
