Systematic linking of double four-ring (D4R) silicate units through their corners with dimethylsilicone monomers creates a new silicate–silicone copolymer named PSS-1 (polyoligosiloxysilicone number one). PSS-1, which consists of twisted columns of D4R units bridged by dimethylsilicone, shows exceptional thermal stability and mechanical strength. This new polymer is the first member of a new class of materials termed Posisils synthesized from pre-shaped silicate units and silicone linkers.
