Abstract

Two novel kinds of alcohol-soluble ladderlike poly(silsequioxane)s containing side-chain hydroxy groups (OH-T2) were prepared successfully for the first time by hydrolysis of ladderlike poly(silses-quioxane)s with side-chain ester groups (Ester-T1 and Ester-T2), which were synthhhesized by stepwise coupling polymerization. A variety of characterization methods including FT-IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR, 29Si NMR, differential scanning calorimetry (VPO), gel permeation chromatography (GPC), and X-ray diffraction (XRD) were combined to demonstrate that the obtained alcohol-soluble polymers have ladderlike structures. although some structural defects still existed.
