Some laws governing epoxidation of vinylorganosiloxanes

  • 18 Accesses


  1. 1.

    We have synthesized and characterized epoxyethylphenyldi(trimethylsiloxy)silane, epoxyethyltri(trimethylsiloxy)silane, and methylepoxyethyldi(trimethylsiloxy)silane.

  2. 2.

    Epoxidation of vinylorganosiloxanes by perbenzoic acid is a second-order reaction; the reaction velocity depends on the polarities and volumes of the substituent radicals at the silicon atom.
