Abstract:

The present investigation has been directed toward the preparation of thermally stable inorganic or semi-inorganic polymers. Initial work included investigations of polymers based on boron-boron and aluminum-oxygen bonding systems. Work was subsequently suspended in these areas in favor of more promising boron-nitrogen and boron-oxygen systems. Conversion of borazoles to linear boron-nitrogen systems or to polyborazoles has not given satisfactory materials, but more promising linear boron-nitrogen systems have been prepared by an alternative method. Recently a series of polymers with boron-oxygen or boron-nitrogen bonds and aromatic groups in the basic chains have been investigated.
