Silane coupling agents. Part IX. Epoxyfunctional carbosilanes

Polimery 2004, No 10, 677


Summary

Epoxyfunctional carbosilanes are a group of silane coupling agents, which because of their structures and properties are applied as crosslinking agents, adhesion promoters or modifiers of fillers and mineral surfaces. Methods of syntheses, properties and characteristics as well as main directions of applications of epoxyfunctional carbosilanes, especially 3-glicydoxypropyltrialkoxysilanes and β-(3,4-epoxycyclohexyl)ethyltrialkoxysilanes have been presented. The first ones are used mainly as silane coupling agents while the other ones as modifiers of polymers. Technology, developed by authors, of 3-glicydoxypropyltriethoxysilane synthesis basing on catalytic process of allyl-glicydyl ether hydrosilylation is a base of this silane production at the UNISIL Co., Ltd. in Tarnów, Poland.
