A new class of compounds is reviewed, the members of which are hybrids of organosilicon and organophosphazene species. They are synthesized either by the reaction of organosilicon halides with organocopper-phosphazene intermediates, or by the interaction of organosilyl or organosiloxy Grignard reagents with chlorophosphazenes. Several of the cyclic trimeric phosphazenes prepared in this way were polymerized by heating to give linear high polymeric phosphazenes with organosilicon side groups.
