    Abstract

    Abstract Here, high purity octa(3-mercaptopropyl) POSS has been synthesized and subsequently reacted with a variety of alkenes via radical and base catalyzed thiol-ene addition reactions. Among them a unique antibacterial agent, eugenyl methacrylate (EgMA), was attached yielding an organic soluble octaEgMA-POSS compound as a potential antibacterial additive for polymeric systems.
