A polyorganosiloxane retaining a SiO4 tetrahedral framework has been synthesized by the reaction of an inosilicate mineral (para-wollastonite) with a trimethylsilylating reagent. The glassy product dissolved in a wide range of organic solvents but was insoluble in water. The analyses of the product by means of infra-red spectroscopy, X-ray powder diffraction and elemental analysis indicated that trimethylsilyl side groups were linked to the SiO4 framework. The thermal stability of the product was determined by thermal analysis.
