Organic/inorganic hybrid silicone polymers are increasingly used in cosmetics, inks and paints, and fabric care applications owing to their special Si-O bond characteristics. Because of the presence of organic as well as inorganic groups, they show the properties of both, and the presence of hydrophobic as well as hydrophilic character makes them behave like a hybrid polymer. Though they are widely used, the utilization of hydrophilically modified silicones on a large scale has mainly been empirical due to lack of fundamental knowledge about variation in their properties with systematic change in their structure. The choice of moieties for hydrophilic modification of silicones in most of the earlier works has been nonionic based on ethylene oxide and propylene oxide groups, however, very little is known about their ionic counterparts. The current work focuses on understanding the behavior of functionally grafted silicone polymers with respect to the variation in the hydrophilic part of the grafting chain. Hydrophilically grafted silicone polymers form monolayers at the air-water interface, which are stabilized by interactions of functional groups with water. The present work examined the effects of functional group modifications on the conformational behavior of chains at the interface. It was observed that the shape of the chain depends on the available area at the interface (or surface pressure), and there are conformational changes with an increase in the number of molecules per unit area. While a poly(dimethylsiloxanes) (PDMS) chain may undergo stretched to helix transition as predicted earlier, this may not be the case for hydrophilically grafted chains. On the basis of the shape of the surface pressure-area isotherm and correlation with the scaling theory, a gradation in hydrophilicity of functional groups and hence modified silicone chains at the air-water interface is predicted.
