Summary

New synthetic routes to organosilicon polymers containing SiH2 groups and organic π-electron units in the polymer main chain are described. The polymer backbone is formed by condensation of α,ω-bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyloxy)-substituted organosilicon compounds containing SiFh groups with the organometallic dinucleophiles Li2C2, Li2C4, and 1,4-BrMg-C6H4-MgBr. We could confirm the formation at low temperatures, in short reaction times, and with high yields.
