2-Hydroxyethyl methacrylate를 PDMS (polydimethylsiloxane)와 반응시켜methacrylate 말단기를 가진 PDMS prepolymer를 합성하였으며, 탄성 및 유연성을 증가시키기 위하여 AIBN 개시제를 사용하여 BMA(butyl methacrylate)와 공중합 시켰다. 얻어진 공중합체의 함수율은 23%로 나타났으며, 가시광선 투과율은 83%, 산소투과율은 50 Dk/t 이상 이었다. 이 중합체는 우수한 콘택트렌즈 재료로서의 특성을 보였다.

Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) with methacrylate endgroup is used as contact lens material with elasticity and high oxygen permeability. PDMS prepolymer with methacrylate endgroup was prepared by reacting PDMS (polydimethylsiloxane) with HEMA (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate). The HEMA-substituted PDMS prepolymer was then copolymerized using AIBN (azobisisobutyronitrile) with BMA (butyl methacrylate; to increase elasticity and flexibility). The water content, oxygen permeability, and visible-ray transmissibility of the resulting polymer were measured to be 23%, 83% and Dk/t > 50, indicating that the copolymer can be used as a good contact lens material.
