The syntheses of the first series of 1-halo-l-alkyltetrachlorocyclotriphosphazenes [halogen X = Cl (III), X = Br (IV), X = I (V)] are described, together with the structural characterization of these compounds. Compounds of type III are polymer precursors. Species of type V are the first examples of phosphazenes with a phosphorus-iodine bond. Surprisingly, the substitution reactions of these compounds with organic nucleophiles take place at a position geminal to the alkyl group.
