Multifunctional imine-POSS as uncommon 3D nanobuilding blocks for supramolecular hybrid materials: synthesis, structural characterization, and properties

Abstract

In this article, we report on the chemistry and the spectroscopic properties of well-defined imino-functionalized polyoctahedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes (imine-POSS) with various substitutions. Our efforts were mainly focused on side chains with sizable aryl groups possessing hydroxyl, nitro, and halide moieties. Such a choice enabled us to track their reduction abilities to secondary amine-POSS, tautomerization effects, and thermal properties. We also report for the first time the solid-state structures of five imino-functionalized cage-like octasilsesquioxanes. These structures provide unique examples of the complexities of three-dimensional packing motifs and their relationship with the assembly of tunable materials from nanobuilding blocks.
