    Abstract: The present invention is a method for manufacturing a reactive polysiloxane solution, the method comprising: a condensation process for hydrolyzing and copolycondensing a starting compound containing an organosilicon compound having a reactive functional group selected from a (meth)acryloyl group and an oxetanyl group, and also having a siloxane bond-forming group to synthetize a reactive polysiloxane represented by general formula (1); a dissolution process for dissolving the obtained reactive polysiloxane in an organic solvent for water washing; and a washing process for bringing the obtained organic solution and water in contact with each other to remove the water layer from the mixed liquid. The organic solvent for water washing that is used is a compound (e.g., propylene glycol mono butyl ether, 1-pentanol) including a hydroxyl group, having a boiling point at 1 atm of 110° C.-200° C., and a solubility of 10 g or less in 100 g of water at 20° C.

    Abstract: Compositions and methods of removing particulate matter from a surface. An example comprises contacting a kneadable dust removal composition with the surface so that the particulate matter adheres or becomes embedded within the composition, and is removed from the surface with the dust removal composition. Preferably the dust removal composition comprises a polymerized siloxane, more preferably a substituted polymerized siloxane, even more preferably, a non-cross-linked, linear polymerized siloxane. In other embodiments the invention comprises a kneadable dust removal composition, preferably comprising a polymerized siloxane. The dust removal composition may be packaged to be attachable to a broom, sweeper, or mop so that it make used to pick up residue from sweeping, brushing or mopping. In other embodiments the dust removal composition may be packaged in a “twist-up” or other similar package permitting the composition to be extruded or advanced to expose a fresh surface.
