Abstract:

A substantial number of new polymer systems have been synthesized and developed to make use of the valuable properties imparted by inorganic elements incorporated into a macromolecular structure. The new polymers range from solvent-resistant elastomers to non-burning materials, and species that form excellent membranes and structural materials. The work has led also to the development of a system for understanding the relationship between polymer structure and useful property combinations in ways that should assist the rapid evolution of new polymers needed for specific specialized applications.
