Herein we describe the synthesis and in-depth characterization of chemically blended hybrid glasses in which polymer molecules are uniformly distributed and covalently bonded to inorganic matrices. This approach uses a monomer with double bonds, which are hydrosilylated with triethoxy silane and co-condensed with silicon tetraalkoxide to afford a molecular composite of SiO2 glass and the polymer. The generated coposites were characterized using SEM, TGA and XRD as well as a host of stability tests. They showed increased stability and uniform distribution of the blend.
