Abstract:

Investigation of carborane-siloxane polymer synthesis was continued. Polymeric products with the structure O-SiCH32CH23CB10H10CCH23SiCH32- were prepared by silylalkoxy-silylhalide condensation polymerization, hydrolysis condensation polymerization of silylhalides, and by ring-opening polymerization of a cyclosiloxane. Thermal stability of carborane-siloxane polymers was determined by thermogravimetry and molecular weight changes in heat treated materials.
