Silane coupling agents. Part IX. Epoxyfunctional carbosilanes


Epoxyfunctional carbosilanes are a group of silane coupling agents, which because of their structures and properties are applied as crosslinking agents, adhesion promoters or modifiers of fillers and mineral surfaces. Methods of syntheses [equation (2) and (3)], properties and characteristics as well as main directions of applications of epoxyfunctional carbosilanes, especially 3-glicydoxypropyltrialkoxysilanes [Formula (I)] and beta-(3,4--epoxycyclohexyl)ethyltrialkoxysilanes [Formula (II)] have been presented. The first ones are used mainly as silane coupling agents while the other ones as modifiers of polymers. Technology, developed by authors, of 3-glicydoxypropyltriethoxysilane synthesis basing on catalytic process of allyl-glicydyl ether hydrosilylation is a base of this silane production at the UNISIL Co., Ltd. in Tarnów, Poland.
