|Title:||Partially pyrolyzed poly(dimethylsiloxane)-based networks: Thermal characterization and evaluation of the gas permeability|
|Abstract:||In this investigation, the preparation and characterization of partially pyrolyzed membranes based on poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) are described. These membranes were obtained by the crosslinking of silanol-terminated PDMS with multifunctional nanoclusters derived from the reaction of pentaerythritoltriacrylate with 2-aminoethyl-3-aminopropyltrimethoxysilane and the in situ polycondensation of tetraethylortosilicate, followed by the thermal treatment of the resulting membranes at different temperatures. The partially pyrolyzed membranes were characterized with infrared spectroscopy, thermogravimetry, elemental analyses, dynamic mechanical analysis, small-angle X-ray scattering, and scanning electron microscopy. The membranes exhibited improvements in the thermal stability and mechanical strength. Even with distinct compositions with respect to the Si/O and Si/C ratios, the flexibility of these materials was maintained. The flux rates of the gases through the membranes were measured for N-2, H-2, O-2, CH4, and CO2, at 25 degrees C. The permeability of the membranes changed with increases in the pyrolysis and oxidation temperatures. These membranes could be described as PDMS chains separated by inorganic clusters.
