abstract

  • A series of room temperature liquid siloxane-triarylamine hybrids were synthesized using the Piers-Rubinsztajn reaction. These materials displayed well behaved electrochemical oxidation and low T(g)'s and were free-flowing liquids. The interaction between the Lewis acidic tris(pentafluorophenyl)borane catalyst and the Lewis basic starting triarylamine substrate was also investigated by steady state UV-vis spectroscopy and (19)F NMR.
