The pyrolysis products from two cyclo-linear methylsiloxane polymers have been analysed, and formation of the important products interpreted in terms of a simple decomposition mechanism. This mechanism is very similar to that of the polydimethylsiloxane degradation; thus cyclic oligomers are formed from the linear segments, and polycyclic compounds from the cyclic segments of the cyclolinear methylsiloxane polymers.
