The viscoelastic properties of some inorganic polymers are reviewed. The materials are divided into two parts, i.e. those that exhibit bond interchange and those that do not. The materials which relax by simple diffusional motion are very similar in their properties to organic polymers. In those that exhibit bond interchange the time-temperature superposition principle is not operative, but creep compliances are additive so that in some cases it is possible to estimate the contribution of each of the mechanisms to the shear viscosity.
