Abstract:

In a study of the inherent thermal stability of metallosiloxane systems, some model compounds were prepared in a pure state and their behaviour on heating in absence of air was examined. The compounds studied were a Me3SiOnM, where M Sin4, Gen4, Snn4, Tin4, and Aln3 b Et3SiO3Al and Et3SiO4Ti c Ph3SiO4Sn, Ph3SiO4Ti and PhSiO3Al. It is concluded that introduction of M-O-Si linkages into polysiloxanes is most unlikely to lead to an increase in thermal stability. In liquid polymers it will, exept when MGe, lead to a marked fall in stability, but in solid systems the thermal stability could be acceptable if other desirable properties were present. The marked hydrolytic instability of the M-O-Si linkages, except when MGe, will place a severe limitation on the usefulness of polymers containing them. Author
