Waste-free and efficient hydrosilylation of olefins

Author affiliations


High purity silicone precursors can now be synthesized by hydrosilylation of solvent-free olefins catalyzed by a highly stable and active glass hybrid catalyst consisting of mesoporous organosilica microspheres doped with Pt nanoparticles. These findings open the door to the sustainable manufacture of silicone and a way to further reduce the amount of platinum in silicones, which are ubiquitous advanced polymers with multiple uses and applications.
