Abstract: Starting from trichlorosilanes and using 1,4-phenylenediamine as a template, we have synthesized some ladderlike poly(glycidyl-co-alkyl/aryl)siloxanes (polyepoxysiloxanes or polyepoxies for short). The structures of copolymers were confirmed through IR, 1H NMR, elemental analyses, and gel permeation chromatography. Curing behaviors of these polyepoxies in the absence and presence of a curing agent have been studied with DSC. It was shown that these epoxies could be cured without any curing agent. Copolymers having aromatic groups showed higher curing reactivity than those having alkyl groups. The experimental results also demonstrate that the curing reaction occurred solely via epoxy functionality, not via the condensation reaction of the hydroxy groups located at the end of polymer main chains. The thermal stability of the cured polymers was examined by thermogravimetric analysis. The results confirm that polyepoxies with aromatic groups had better thermal stability than those with alkyl groups. It was also found that polyepoxies cured with a diamine have a higher thermal stability than those cured in the absence of a curing agent.
