Summary

The general area of organosilicon-containing hyperbranched polymers is reviewed. Different routes to synthesis are described with emphasis on the formation of hyperbranched materials via alkyne polycyclotrimerizations. Polymer structure and property, emphasizing optical properties, development is given. Uses for these materials include non-linear optical and photoluminescence optical applications in the communications industry.
