Abstract

Aluminum, titanium and zirconium perfluoroheptanoate (PFH) were prepared by reaction of Al, Ti and Zr-alkoxides with perfluoroheptanoic acid (PFHA) in alcohol. All compounds were characterized by NMR spectroscopy, FTIR, MS and elemental analysis and used in polymerization of 3-glycidyloxypropyltrimethoxysilane (GPTS) in order to see their catalytic activity over epoxides. These catalysts were effective in ring opening of epoxide. Poly-GPTS was characterized by H-1, C-13 NMR and gel permeation chromatography (GPC). (C) 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
