  • Patent number: 11168181
    Abstract: A method for the preparation of an alkoxy-functional hydrogensiloxane oligomer includes reacting a polyorganohydrogensiloxane oligomer and an aliphatically unsaturated alkoxysilane in the presence of a hydrosilylation reaction and a promoter. The resulting crude reaction product is treated with a treating agent, and thereafter distilled to produce the alkoxy-functional organohydrogensiloxane oligomer. The alkoxy-functional hydrogensiloxane oligomer can be reacted with polyorganosiloxane having an aliphatically unsaturated monovalent hydrocarbon group to form a polyalkoxy-functional polyorganosiloxane. The polyalkoxy-functional polyorganosiloxane can be formulated in condensation reaction curable compositions.
