Abstract

The synthesis and characterization of soluble and processable high molecular weight polysilsesquioxanes with carboxylate functionalities was discussed. It was found that the tert-butyl functionality in these polymers was eliminated to give carboxylic acids functionalized polysilsesquioxane or methyltin carboxylatosilsesquioxane gels. The analysis showed that the polysilsesquioxane binds and removes tin through gelation.
