The synthesis of copolymers of vinyl p-tert-butylbenzoate (PTBBA) with 3-methacryloxypropyltris- (trimethylsiloxy)silane (Si-1) and their properties including oxygen permeability are presented. All copolymers had molecular weights above 105 and were easily processable by casting from benzene solution. The Si-1 comonomer content in the obtained copolymer was estimated from the change in the characteristic infra-red absorption due to the carbonyl group of PTBBA and Si-1 units and the benzene ring of the PTBBA unit. The oxygen permeability Po2 increases from 9.1 x 10 1o cm 3 (STP)cm(cm2 s cmHg)-1 for the PTBBA homopolymer to 1.6?10-8cm3(STP)cm(cm2scmHg) I for the Si-1 homopolymer, whereas the corresponding ratio of PoJPN~ decreases from 2.7 to 2.2. Po~ and Po2/PN2 for the copolymer reach a plateau around 25-65 Si-1 mol oV o,w here the values are 0.9 x 10- 8 -1 ? 10- 8 cm 3 (STP) cm(cm2 s cmHg) and 2.4-2.5, respectively. The logarithmic value of Po2 linearly increases with decreasing glass transition temperature.
