Abstract:

Polystyrenepolymethylphenylsilylene and polyisoprenepolymethylphenyl silylene block copolymers were prepared by two independent methods. Subsequent additions of solutions of cyclotetrasilanes in benzene to the living ends of polystyrene and polyisoprene resulted in the formation of well-defined block copolymers with narrow molecular weight distributions MwMn 1.3. Condensation of the living ends of polyisoprene and polystyrene with bromide end-terminated polysilanes also resulted in the formation of block copolymers. The materials were characterized by lH and 29Si NMR, GPC, DSC, and elemental analysis. jg p.2
