“Host–guest” interaction between cyclohexasilane and amphiphilic invertible macromolecules

Author affiliations

Abstract

Liquid cyclohexasilane (Si6H12) is localized within polymeric templates from amphiphilic invertible polymers (AIPs) to form a stable composition. NMR study reveals Si6H12 primarily interacts with ester group-containing polymeric fragments. Interaction with ether group-containing fragments occurs at higher silane concentration. AIP self-assembly gives rise to an additional interaction between cyclohexasilane and hydrophobic polymeric domains.
