Abstract

Poly(organophosphazenes) have been synthesized with alkyl ether alkoxy side groups attached to the phosphorus atoms of the skeleton. These species are water-stable and either water-soluble or hydrophilic polymers. Specific members of this series form complexes with metal salts, which are excellent solid electrolyte materials. Mixed substituent polymers with hydrophobic trifluoroethoxy and alkyl ether alkoxy side groups have also been prepared, and these are of interest as membranes and biomedical materials.
