Abstract:

Studies are under way for the synthesis of organometallic polymers similar in molecular structure to the silicones, but containing metal atoms or metallic oxides in their polymeric chains. In this connection, results of preparation of several different metallic salts of polybetacarboxyethyl methyl siloxane are presented. Results of thermal stability studies of these metal salts of the polymer indicate that the original carboxylated polymer is more heat resistant than are the various metallic salt derivatives. The Al, Zr, and Ti products are more thermally stable t an are the Pb, C6H52 Pb, and Fe salts of the polymer. Correlation of relative heat resistant properties of the various metal salts of the siloxane polymer with bond dissociation energy values is presented. Author
