A new postfunctional method to synthesize C60-containing polysiloxanes



Two new C60-containing polysiloxanes were synthesized by a new postfunctional method. First, the predesigned amimo end-functionalized polysiloxane was prepared, and then the reactive macromolecular intermediate reacted with C60 molecules in chlorobenzene to yield the C60-containing polysiloxanes. Molecular structural characterization for the polymers was presented by 1H-NMR, IR, and ultraviolet-visible spectra. The polymers exhibited good solubility in common organic solvents and were air stable. © 2003 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci 89: 2068–2071, 2003
