Abstract

Considerable interest exists in the development in the development of new types of polymers that possess improved physical characteristics compared to conventional organic materials. Such properties may include thermo-oxidative stability, inertness to ultraviolet radiation or biocompatibility. The authors have discovered that the cyclic thiophosphazene 5 polymerizes when heated at 90°C to give polymer 5. Organic derivatives of 6 may be obtained by reaction with nucleophiles. This has provided access to a new class of inorganic-organic polymers; the poly(thiophosphazenes).
