Abstract

See full text

Provided is a terminal borinic acid group-modified polymer having a borinic acid group at least at a molecular terminus thereof, comprising a polymer of at least one of a styrene monomer and a diene monomer. The above terminal borinic acid group-modified polymer may be manufactured by performing a polymerization reaction of at least one of a styrene monomer and a diene monomer in the presence of an anionic polymerization initiator, and then adding a cyclic boronic anhydride to quench the polymerization reaction. When the resulting terminal borinic acid group-modified polymer is added to a silica-containing rubber composition for automobile pneumatic tires as a component thereof, the dispersibility of silica compounded therein can be improved, fully achieving a performance of a good balance between reduced rolling resistance inherent in silica and stability on a wet road.
