Abstract Stereoregular cyclolinear methylsiloxane copolymers were synthesized by the reaction of heterofunctional polycondensation of E or Z 2,8-dihydroxy-2,4,4,6,6,8,10,10,12,12-decamethylcyclohexasiloxanes with methyldichlorsilane and methylvinildichlorsilane. New stereoregular comb-shaped polymers with main cyclolinear chain were synthesized by the reaction of hydrosilylation of methylsiloxane copolymers with (4'-cyanobiphen-4-yl)undec-10-anoat, (4'-cyanobiphenoxy)-propylene and their HSiMe2OSiMe2-derivatives in presence of Karsted catalyst. By the NMR 1H, 29Si, IR-spectroscopy and GPC methods the structure of the main chain and side groups was confirmed. By the DSC, optic microscopy, SAXS methods the phase behavior was investigated and chain-to-chain distance of stereoregular comb-shaped cyclolinear methylsiloxane copolymers was determined.
