Description

    CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
  • [0001]
    This application is a continuation of International Patent Application No. PCT/JP2005/000372, having an international filing date of Jan. 14, 2005, which designated the United States, the entirety of which is incorporated herein by reference. Japanese Patent Application No. 2004-009205, filed on Jan. 16, 2004, is also incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0002]
    The present invention relates to a method for producing a polymer, a polymer, an insulating-film-forming composition, a method for producing an insulating film, and an insulating film.
  • [0003]
    A silica (SiO2) film formed by a vacuum process such as chemical vapor deposition (CVD) has been widely used as an interlayer dielectric for semiconductor devices or the like. In recent years, a coating-type insulating film called a spin-on-glass (SOG) film which contains a tetraalkoxysilane hydrolysate as the major component has also been used in order to form a more uniform interlayer dielectric. Along with an increase in the degree of integration of semiconductor devices, a low-relative-dielectric-constant interlayer dielectric called an organic SOG which contains a polyorganosiloxane as the major component has been developed.
  • [0004]
    In particular, an improved electrical insulation between conductors has been demanded accompanying a further increase in the degree of integration and the number of layers of semiconductor devices. Therefore, an interlayer dielectric material has been demanded which exhibits a lower relative dielectric constant and excellent crack resistance, mechanical strength, and adhesion.
  • [0005]
    A composition containing fine particles obtained by condensing an alkoxysilane in the presence of ammonia and a basic partial hydrolysate of an alkoxysilane (JP-A-5-263045 and JP-A-5-315319), and a coating liquid obtained by condensing a basic hydrolysate of a polyalkoxysilane in the presence of ammonia (JP-A-11-340219 and JP-A-11-340220) have been proposed as low-relative-dielectric-constant materials. However, the material obtained by the above method is not suitable for production on an industrial scale, since the reaction product exhibits unstable properties and the resulting coating varies to a large extent in relative dielectric constant, crack resistance, mechanical strength, adhesion, and the like. A method of forming a low-dielectric-constant insulating film using a coating liquid prepared by mixing a polycarbosilane solution and a polysiloxane solution has also been proposed (JP-A-2001-127152). However, this method has a problem in which the carbosilane and the siloxane having nonuniform domains are dispersed in the coating.
  • [0006]
    A method has also been proposed which uses an organic silicate polymer obtained by preparing a carbon-bridge-containing silane oligomer from an organometallic silane compound and hydrolyzing and condensing the carbon-bridge-containing silane oligomer (WO2002-098955). However, the material obtained by this method cannot be stored for a long time due to the poor stability of the reaction product. Moreover, this material exhibits poor adhesion to a substrate.
  • SUMMARY
  • [0007]
    An object of the invention is to provide a method for producing a polymer and a polymer capable of forming a film which is suitably used as an interlayer dielectric for semiconductor devices or the like and exhibits a low relative dielectric constant, excellent mechanical strength and adhesion, and uniform quality.
  • [0008]
    Another object of the invention is to provide an insulating-film-forming composition using the polymer according to the invention, a method for producing an insulating film, and an insulating film.

  • [0015]
    The above method for producing a polymer allows a polymer in which the polysiloxane derived from the hydrolyzable-group-containing silane monomer (B) is reacted with the polycarbosilane (A) to be obtained by reacting the hydrolyzable-group-containing silane monomer (B) in the presence of the polycarbosilane (A).

    1.2. Production of Polycarbosilane (A)
  • [0038]
    The polycarbosilane (A) is the following polymer (I), as described above.
  • [0039]
    (I) The polymer obtained by reacting (a) the compound 1 with (b) at least one compound selected from the compound 2 and the compound 3 in an organic solvent in the presence of at least one of an alkali metal and an alkaline earth metal (polymer (I)).
  • [0040]
    In the polymer (I), the molar ratio of the compound 1 to the compound 2 and/or the compound 3 (compound 1/(compound 2 and/or compound 3)) is preferably 0.01 to 100, still more preferably 0.1 to 10, and particularly preferably 0.5 to 5. If the molar ratio is within this range, the degree of polymerization of the resulting polymer can be increased.
  • [0041]

  • [0042]
    The alkali metal and the alkaline earth metal are used to reductively eliminate the halogen atom or the alkoxy group from the compound 1 and the compound 2 and/or the compound 3 to form a carbon-silicon bond. The alkali metal and the alkaline earth metal are preferably used in an amount of 1.0 to 1.5 molar equivalents for the total amount of carbon-halogen bond and carbon-alkoxy group bond of the compound 1 and the compound 2 and/or the compound 3.
  • [0043]
    In the method for producing the polymer (I), the reaction may be promoted by applying ultrasonic waves to the reaction liquid from outside, as required. The frequency of the ultrasonic waves used to promote the reaction is preferably about 10 to 70 kHz.
  • [0044]
    As the organic solvent used in the production of the polymer (I), an ether solvent may be preferably used. When using a hydrocarbon solvent generally used for a Kipping reaction, the yield of the objective soluble silicon oligomer tends to be decreased.
  • [0045]
    Examples of the ether solvent include diethyl ether, di-n-propyl ether, diisopropyl ether, dibutyl ether, ethyl propyl ether, anisole, phenetole, diphenyl ether, diethylene glycol dimethyl ether, diethylene glycol diethyl ether, diethylene glycol dibutyl ether, diethylene glycol methyl ethyl ether, dipropylene glycol dimethyl ether, dipropylene glycol diethyl ether, dipropylene glycol dibutyl ether, dipropylene glycol methyl ethyl ether, ethylene glycol dimethyl ether, ethylene glycol diethyl ether, ethylene glycol dibutyl ether, ethylene glycol methyl ethyl ether, propylene glycol dimethyl ether, propylene glycol diethyl ether, propylene glycol dibutyl ether, propylene glycol methyl ethyl ether, tetrahydrofuran, dioxane, and the like. Of these ether solvents, diethyl ether, tetrahydrofuran, ethylene glycol dimethyl ether, ethylene glycol diethyl ether, and the like are preferable in view of the solubility of the resulting polymer.
  • [0046]
    It is preferable to remove water from the ether solvent in advance. For example, water is preferably removed from the ether solvent by degassing/distillation in the presence of sodium-benzophenone ketyl. The amount of the solvent to be used is not particularly limited. The solvent is used in an amount of preferably 1 to 30 parts by weight, and still more preferably 2 to 20 parts by weight for the total amount of the compound 1 and the compound 2 and/or the compound 3.
  • [0047]
    The reaction temperature of the polymer (I) is preferably 0 to 150° C., and still more preferably 30 to 100° C. If the reaction temperature is lower than 0° C., the productivity may be decreased due to low reaction rate. If the reaction temperature is higher than 150° C., the reaction becomes complicated, whereby the solubility of the resulting polymer tends to be decreased. The reaction is preferably carried out in an inert gas such as argon or nitrogen.
  • [0048]
    In this embodiment, (i) the polymer (I) obtained by the above method may be reacted with an alcohol or an organic acid in an organic solvent when Y in the polymer (I) includes a halogen atom, or (ii) the polymer (I) obtained by the above method may be reacted with a reducing agent in an organic solvent.
