The easiest way to obtain fluorinated hybrid polymers possessing silicone atoms might be vinay copolymerization of fluorinated vinyl monomers with vinyl monomers possessing silyl groups as substituents. To prepare fluorinated hybrid polymers bearing alkylsilyl groups, copolymerization of fluoroalkyl methacrylates with alkylsilyl methacrylates was investigated, and the surface character of the copolymers was examined by measurement of the contact angle with water and methanol. This paper reports the copolymerization reactivity of tributylsilyl methacrylate (NBSM) with 2,2,2-trifluoroethyl methacrylate (TFEM) or 1-trifluoromethyl-2,2,2-trifluoroethyl methacrylate (Hx-FIM) initiated with benzoyl peroxide (BPO) or lithium butyldiethylzincate (LiZnBuEt2).
