Influence of experimental parameters on the side reactions of hydrosilylation of allyl polyethers studied by a fractional factorial design

Abstract

Even though the hydrosilylation reaction has been the method of choice to produce organosilicon compounds for 70 years, improving its selectivity still remains a current challenge. In this work, a comprehensive study of the influence of experimental parameters on hydrosilylation's side reactions were undertaken by applying a fractional factorial design of experiments. The study was achieved for polyethylene glycol (PEG, 1000 g/mol) terminated allyl-ether, which is commonly employed as a reactive function toward hydrosilylation. Besides, the resulting silane-functionalized PEG happen to be molecules of interest in various domains such as biomedical, cosmetic or food industry thanks to their properties in accordance with these sector's requirements. This methodology enables to highlight an optimized combination of experimental parameters as well as a cause-effect relationship between the different side reactions, leading to a better control of this hydrosilylation reaction.
