Coordination polymerization of alkenylsilsesquioxanes and their copolymerization with olefins or styrene

Polimery 2015, No 5, 289

DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.2015.289

The paper is a continuation of literature review on the coordination polymerization of silsesquioxanes (POSS) containing a polymerizable double bond and their copolymerization with alkenes and styrene. In both these cases, an efficient (co)polymerization can be achieved by using metallocene catalysts activated with methylalumoxane (MAO). The incorporation of POSS comonomer to the polymeric material positively affects the properties of the obtained products. They show improved heat resistance and higher mechanical strength than their non-modified counterparts.

Keywords: polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes (POSS), metallocene catalysts, coordination (co)polymerization, mechanical properties, thermal properties
