Abstract: Novel organic-inorganic hybrid nanobuilding blocks of methacrylate- and acrylate-functionalized polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes were easily prepared via nucleophilic substitution on octakis(3-chloropropyl) octasilsesquioxane, using sodium methacrylate and sodium acrylate, respectively. From a practical standpoint, these cage-rearranged silsesquioxanes (T 8, T10, and T12) could be readily isolated in their pure form with conventional silica gel column chromatography. Octakis(3-propyl methacrylate)octasilsesquioxane (T8) is a colorless, crystalline solid with a melting point of 66.7-67.2 C, while other cage products are colorless viscous liquids at room temperature. Moreover, we report that the chemical structure/physical property relationship of silsesquioxane cages not only is dependent on the symmetry of the inorganic silsesquioxane core at a given temperature but also is dictated by the organic substituent mobility. Structures of the products were confirmed by 1H, 13C, and 29Si NMR spectroscopy and high resolution electrospray ionization mass spectrometry analysis. © 2013 American Chemical Society.
