abstract

  • Monofunctional dendritic silicone branches were created from hydro- and alkoxysilanes using the Piers–Rubinsztajn reaction. Monofunctional dendritic silicone branches were added to linear polymers with varied branch frequency, density and backbone molecular weight. Viscosities of the polymers increased with branch frequency to a maximum beyond which the viscosity decreased.
