Phosphorylcholine-substituted silsesquioxanes were synthesized via the UV-initiated thiol-ene 'click' reaction of octakis(3-mercaptopropyl)octasilsesquioxane (POSS-SH) with 2-methacryloyloxyethylphosphorylcholine or allylphosphorylcholine in mixed (DMF/MeOH) solvents, respectively. In addition, the crystal structures of POSS-SH and MPC were first determined.
