Abstract

Hydrosilylation of 2-chloroethylvinyl ether by octahydridosilsesilsesquioxane catalyzed by hexachloroplatinic acid gives a quantitative yield of 3 as white crystals. Thermogravimetric analysis of Si8O12(CH2CH2OCH2CH2Cl)83 revealed that it is thermally reasonably stable. Spectroscopic data and a crystal structure determination have been used to confirm the integrity, structural and molecular connectivity of the novel compound.
