The synthesis of several new interpenetrating polymer networks composed of polyphosphazenes with organic polymers is reported. Full, sequential IPNs were prepared between poly[bis(methoxyethoxy)- ethoxy)phosphazene] or poly[bis(propyloxy benzoate)phosphazene] and several organic polymers including polystyrene, poly(methyl methacrylate), poly(acrylic acid), and polyacrylonitrile. These materials were characterized by NMR and IR spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, and transmission electron microscopy.
