The preparation of a novel series of multifunctional silicon‐containing epoxide monomers, oligomers, and polymers has been carried out. The hydrosilylation method employed was found to be applicable to the design and synthesis of a wide variety of materials with different chemical and mechanical characteristics, which range from hard and brittle to elastomeric. By tailoring the kinds of and number of epoxide groups that are incorporated into these materials, it is possible to substantially modify the…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
