Abstract:

Dechlorination of mixtures of CH2CHSiMeC12 with other chlorosilanes, using sodium metal in hydrocarbonTHF solvent blends, provides vinylic polysilanes which are excellent precursors for silicon carbide ceramic compositions. These polymers are soluble, relatively inert, and are thermally curable through reactions of the vinyl groups. Author
