Although more than 700 different polyphosphazenes are known, with a wide range of physical and chemical properties, a further expansion of materialsproperties can be accomplishedby combining thesemacromoleculeswithother materials such as organic polymers, ceramics or semiconductors. These combinations lead to uses in the fields of biomedicine, energy generation and energy storage, and the formation of nano-particles such as micelles. This article is a review of recent developments in the author's laboratory to combine polyphosphazenes with other materials in order to generate new combinations of useful properties.
