Abstract:

The polyorganophosphazenes are a new class of high polymers based on an inorganic backbone of alternating phosphorus and nitrogen atoms. These polymers show considerable promise in meeting materials requirements that cannot be met by conventional organic polymers. In this report, the history of phosphazene polymer development is briefly reviewed, the synthesis and properties of polyorganophosphazenes are described and some of the problems associated with their synthesis are outlined. The potential technological applications of these polymers as extreme-service materials, protective coatings, textile products and biomedical materials, are also described. Author
