To prepare stable polymer-titania hybrids, titania particles were modified using urushiol (extracted from Japanese lacquer) via surface complexation. The urushiol moieties underwent hydrosilylation and radical graft-polymerization to yield polymer-titania hybrids in which the titania particles were dispersed in polymer matrices.
