Oligomeric silsesquioxanes show excellent properties derived from their unique structure, and have been used as component to improve the property of various polymeric systems. Reaction conditions to obtain specific structure of the silsesquioxanes are discussed paying attention to the reaction mechanism. Some functionalization reactions were also illustrated.
