The poly(dihalophosphazenes), (NPF2)n, (NPCl2)n, and (NPBr2)n, have been examined by conformational analysis using nonbonding intramolecular interactions based on a 6:12 Lennard-Jones potential and a Coulombic term. The results provide an insight into the reasons for the low glass transition temperatures, the high chain flexibilities, and the conformational preferences of these molecules.
