Polymerization of phenyl-, benzyl-, and phenethyltroalkoxysilanes formed soluble oligo- and polysilsesquixanes. No gels of any of the monomers were observed to form. The molecular weights of the materials prepared and dried at room temperature were near 2K, but would continuously increase with heating at 100°C to between 5-15K. The polymers were structurally characterized by 1H, 13C, and 29Si NMR.
