Silicone elastomers are rapidly formed at room temperature using B(C6F5)3 as a catalyst that ligates H-terminated silicone chains with alkoxysilane crosslinkers. The metal free process is extremely rapid: normally the process is slowed down by the addition of small amounts of solvent, which also facilitates the formation of bubble-free transparent elastomers.
