Abstract:

The reaction of chrysotile with hydrochloric acid and chlorotrimethylsilane has yielded a stable organosilicon polymer consisting of ribbons which are curled up along their long axes into fibers. The dimensions of the fibers approximate those of chrysotile. Exposure of the fiber rolls to organic solvents causes them to uncoil. Author
