It is proposed that the hydroxyl groups generated from the ring-opening polymerization of epoxy groups reacts with either the ethoxyl or silanols groups of the polysilicate network to form a "tethered" structure between the organic and inorganic phase.
Since the UV-curing process is a very fast ring-opening polymerization, not all of the reactive groups such as ethoxyl and silanols would react with hydroxyl groups.
