The synthesis of full and graft interpenetrating polymer networks (IPNs) based on polydimethylsiloxane and poly(methyl methacrylate) is described. IPNs were obtained by an in-situ sequential synthesis. Most samples were opaque ; however, in a few cases, transparency was noted. Other properties like stress-strain behaviour, hardness and glass transition temperature were examined. Owing to the particular behaviour of silicone-containing polymers, the surface properties and the permeability to oxygen of these IPNs were also studied.
