Abstract:

Polyphosphazenes are among the most versatile of all polymers. This is a consequence of the unique properties of the phosphorus-nitrogen backbone and the ease with which a wide range of different side groups can be introduced mainly by macromolecular substitution, but also by the polymerization of different monomers . This field has reached a stage where the fundamental chemistry now allows the design and synthesis of a broad range of new materials that are valuable for properties such as elasticity, high refractive index, liquid crystallinity, ferroelectric-, NLO-, and photochromic attributes, and for uses as solid ionic conductors, biomedical microencapsulation polymers, and materials with controlled surface properties.
