One-Pot Synthesis and Characterization of Poly(Alkoxysilane)s Promoted by Silver Colloidal Nanoparticles
Abstract:Si–Si/Si–O dehydrocoupling of hydrosilanes with alcohols (1:1.5 mole ratio), catalyzed by AgNO3 which converted to Ag(0) colloidal nanoparticles, gave poly(alkoxysilane)s in one-pot in moderate to high yield. The hydrosilanes include p-X-C6H4SiH3 (X = H, CH3, OCH3, F), PhCH2SiH3, and (PhSiH2)2. The alcohols include MeOH, EtOH, iPrOH, PhOH, and CF3(CF2)2CH2OH. The weight average molecular weight and polydispersity of the poly(alkoxysilane)s were in the range of 1,600∼8,000 Dalton and 1.4∼3.5. The dehydrocoupling reactions of phenylsilane with ethanol (1:3 mole ratio) in the presence of the silver nanocolloid catalyst produced only triethoxyphenylsilane as product.
