Poly(norbornenyldecaborane) (PND) was synthesized via ruthenium catalyzed ring opening metathesis polymerization and was found to be a good single-source polymeric boron carbide precursor. Polymer blends of PND and allylhydridopolycarbosilane (AHPCS) were also found to be excellent precursors to boron-carbide/silicon-carbide composite materials.
