Investigation of a Direct Synthesis of Silicone Precursors
In this paper, we are reporting our recent efforts on the direct synthesis procedure of methyl phenoxy silane monomers by the reaction of elemental silicon with anisole, Ph-O-Me. This procedure gave about 4%, 8% and 40% of dimethyl diphenoxy, methyl triphenoxy and tetraphenoxy silane respectively under the experimental conditions. The anisole reacts with elemental silicon directly in the present of catalyst copper (I) chloride at a high temperature and pressure. The major products were teraphenoxy silane (40%), and small amount of methyl triphenoxy silane (8%) and dimethyl diphenoxy silane (4%).
