Conformational and optical properties of the molecules of alkylphenylsiloxane co-polymers and a number of ring- containing organosiloxanes have been studied. It was established that the high content of phenyl side group linear molecules and the interaction between them determine on the molecular level the main features of molecular conformation: increase in equilibrium rigidity and high optical anisotropy. These molecular characteristics are in good agreement with those of the polymer on the supermolecular level.
