Epub 2010 Sep 22.Precreamic polysiloxane networks were prepared by hydrosilylation of 1,3,5,7-tetravinyl-1,3,5,7-tetramethylcyclotetrasiloxane (D(4)(Vi)) with a series of linear hydrogensiloxanes as well as with a cyclic hydrogensiloxane, namely 2,4,6,8-tetramethylcyclotetrasiloxane (D(4)(H)) at various hydrogensiloxane/D(4)(Vi) molar ratios in the starting reaction mixture. FTIR spectroscopic measurements conducted during the processes as well as for the reaction products allowed to reveal that the rate of D(4)(Vi) hydrosilylation as well as its efficiency are influenced by the type of hydrogensiloxane used and by the reactants molar ratio.
