Cyclohexanoneformaldehyde resins were modified in situ with ,-diamine polydimethylsiloxanes and ,-dihydroxy polydimethylsiloxanes. Melting points, solubilities in organic solvents, gel permeation chromatographs, Fourier transform infrared spectra, and NMR spectra of the modified resin were determined, and the surface properties of the resins were investigated by contact angle measurements. A small amount of silicon compounds seemed to effect the physical properties of the cyclohexanoneformaldehyde resins significantly.
