Reaction of diorganodichlorosilanes with resorcinol

  • 18 Accesses


  1. 1.

    Polymeric products are formed when diorganodichlorosilanes are reacted with resorcinol. The condensation products of resorcinol with dimethyldichlorosilane or diethyldichlorosilane undergo depolymerization with the formation of cyclic compounds.

  2. 2.

    Three new cyclic compounds were isolated and characterized.

  3. 3.

    The polymers, obtained from resorcinol and either methylvinyldichlorosilane or methylphenyldi-chlorosilane, do not depolymerize when subjected to the action of heat, and instead are converted to three-dimensional polymers.
