Polysiloxanes containing grafted and/or end-capped functional groups, due to their specific properties, receive attention in various industrial applications. This paper presents the synthesis and development of new polyfunctional silicones. For example, the grafting of selected organofunctional groups onto silicone backbones allows us to increase the hydrophobic-oleophobic permanence or hydrophilic softness properties for textile treatments. To achieve this, new synthetic routes using novel organometallic catalysts and specific monomers have been developed.
