Novel Fluoropolymer Functionalized Silsesquioxanes for Nanoscale Architecture of Hybrid Composites
Abstract:Condensation of octa(aminophenyl)silsesquioxane with 4-(trifluorovinyloxy)benzoyl chloride affords new fluoroolefin functionalized silsesquioxanes in good yield. The new octa-trifluorovinyl functionalized monomer undergoes thermal copolymerization with established trifluorovinyl aryl ether terminated perfluorocyclobutyl (PFCB) oligomers, giving the first example of silsesquioxane functionalized PFCB materials. The new hybrid polymers offer a versatile building block toward a variety of nanocomposite applications including low loss photonics.
