Mass-spectrometric study of heat degradation of polymethylsilsesquioxanes

  • 23 Accesses


  1. 1.

    The mass-spectrometric method was used to analyze the heat-degradation products of polymethylsilsesquioxanes.

  2. 2.

    The heat resistance of the polymers increases with increase in the functionality of the starting mixture of chlorosilanes.
