MS0802 – DodecaPhenyl POSS is a hybrid molecule with an inorganic silsesquioxane at the core and organic phenyl groups attached at the corners of the cage. MS0802 can be used as a porogen in plastics and as a nanoreinforcement in rubber. It has also been used to improve laser marking in fluoropolymers.
In cosmetics applications, MS0802 – DodecaPhenyl POSS contains 12 phenyl groups and can be utilized to enhance refractive index. MS0802 is a crystalline solid that will dissolve slowly in aromatics and selected aliphatics. MS0802 – DodecaPhenyl POSS can be used to enhance transfer resistance as it will form a clear surface film.
