Abstract

Cyclophosphazenes have two relationships to linear high polymers: first, they may function as “monomers” for polymerization to high polymers; and second, they serve as small molecule reaction and structural models for the high polymers. These principles are illustrated by the behavior of cyclophosphazenes that bear organometallic side groups, and by species that have side units that are of biomedical interest. Some emerging applications of this chemistry are also mentioned.
