In an attempt to explore the mechanism for the synthesis of silsesquioxanes (POSS), the entire reaction processes from HSi(OH)3 to T8, one of the most common and stable POSS was investigated with electronic structure theory calculations, including electron correlation effects. In addition, the effect of some controlling factors, which play important roles in the reaction mechanism, is discussed.
