The approach used in the synthesis of hybrid organic/inorganic materials involves incorporating nano-size inorganic polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) clusters into various polymeric resins. A typical POSS cluster is a discreet silicon and oxygen framework solubilized with organic groups, one or more of which contain reactive functionalities. The synthesis of melt processable, linear hybrid polymers containing pendent inorganic clusters, was permitted and allowed to study the effect these clusters had on chain motion, polymer properties and morphology.
