The structure of polysiloxane copolymers obtained by hydrosilylation of 1-octene with polymethylhydrosiloxane (PMHS) was analyzed by 29Si NMR spectroscopy and revealed a tendency to form block copolymers. Although all the platinum catalysts that were used showed a tendency to form some block structures, only Karstedt catalyst led to well defined block copolymers. However, the tacticity of these copolymers could not be determined using Heteronuclear Multiple Bond Correlation (HMBC) 2D (1H/ 29Si) NMR technique. The following criteria were found to affect the structure of the hydrosilylation product: low SiH conversion, the “age” of the Karstedt catalyst (low TON) and high octene/SiH ratios.
