Abstract

The discovery of the 'living' cationic PCl5-induced polymerization of phosphoranimines has created a renewed interest in phosphazene materials with an emphasis on variation in polymer properties with changes in molecular weight, polydispersities, and branching. The new method also provides access to unprecedented copolymeric organic/phosphazene materials. Current research is focused on the development of organic/phosphazene block copolymers.
