The CB-PHSEPE, CB-PMSEPE, and CB-PVSEPE polymers were further analyzed by [sup.1.H]- and [sup.13.C]-NMR spectra, The [sup.1.H]-NMR spectra show broad B-H resonances in the range of 0.70-3.30 ppm and a distinct peak for C--H group in carborane cages ([CB.sub.10][H.sub.10]CH) at 4.0 ppm.
To calculate the conversion ratios of ethynyl (--C[equivalent to]CH) and ethynylene (--ph--C[equivalent to]C--Si--) moieties to the corresponding carborane groups, a precise study of peak integration was carried out.
The main differences of [13.sup.C]-NMR spectra for CB-PHSEPE, CB-PMSEPE, and CB-PVSEPE polymers from their pristine polymers PHSEPE, PMSEPE, and PVSEPE are the appearance of two groups of carbon resonances for the carborane cages.
