Quasielastic Neutron Scattering Study of POSS Ligand Dynamics



Niina Jalarvo, Madhu Sudan Tyagi, Michael K. Crawford


Polyoligosilsesquioxanes are molecules having cage-like structures composed of silicon and oxygen. These molecules can have a wide variety of functional ligands attached to them. Depending on the nature of the ligand, interesting properties and application possibilities are found. In this work we present results from quasielastic neutron scattering measurements of four different POSS molecules that illustrate the presence of strong coupling between the ligand dynamics and the POSS crystal structures.
