  • Publication number: 20200239641
    Abstract: A polysiloxazane compound including a repeating unit of the following general formula (1), and having a number average molecular weight of 500 to 100,000 as measured by gel permeation chromatography versus polystyrene standards, wherein R1 and R2 each independently represent a substituted or unsubstituted C1-C50 monovalent hydrocarbon group optionally containing a hetero atom, Xs each independently represent a methyl group, an oxygen atom, NH—SiX2, or (NH)(3-r)/2—SiR1R2r (R1 and R2 have the same meaning as provided above), or Xs are joined to one another to represent an oxygen atom, n is an integer of 0 to 8, when the number of NH—SiX2 is denoted by p, p satisfies 0?p/(2n+4)?0.5, r is an integer of 0, 1, or 2, and a and b are numbers satisfying 0<a?1, 0?b<1, and a+b=1.
