Abstract

In recent years, a considerable number of studies have been carried out on model networks of poly(dimethyllsiloxane) (PDMS). The present study focuses on synthesizing PDMS networks employing hydrosilylation reactions at low temperatures. At low temperatures, significant side reactions would be absent, thereby leading to networks with defined stoichiometries and so would be more suitable to test the molecular theories. In the present investigation we adopt the theory of local constraint on the junctions to interrupt the elastomeric properties of the networks.
