A series of three highly efficient reactions, Pt-catalyzed hydrosilation, regiospecific bromination, and Pd-catalyzed cross coupling, were performed on a siloxane polymer. This led to the formation of new; highly functionalized polysiloxanes that exhibit second-order nonlinear optical and photoconductive properties. Relatively efficient formation of the stilbene moieties produced siloxane polymers in which each repeat unit bears a charge transporting moiety and an arylamine-based NLO chromophore.
