A Study of Pyrolysis of Polymethylsiloxanes by Fourier Transform Infrared
Abstract:This paper is dedicated to a comparative study of pyrolysis of decamethylcyclopentasiloxane and hexamethyldisiloxane, widely used as precursors for CVD of silicon dioxide films. The pyrolysis process was carried out in a hot-wall horizontal tube reactor made from quartz within the temperature range 25–1000 °C. FTIR spectroscopy has been used for the analysis of gaseous reaction products in the exhaust line of the reactor. It has been found that transformation of DMPSO was initiated by the open ring in the precursor molecules with its further transformation to linear biradicals followed by the chain's growth due to radical reactions. HMDSO transformation is connected with separation of silanon, silyl and methyl radicals with following multi-type interactions of siloxane radicals and formation of non-rigorously organized three-dimensional molecules.
