A new class of reactive inorganic polymers - the polyphosphazenes - can be used as macromolecular intermediates for the synthesis of a wide range of inorganic-organic solids. By reactions that change the polymer side groups, it is possible to bias the properties toward elastomers or microcrystalline polymers, liquid crystalline materials, bioerodable solids, solids with bioactive surfaces, solid electrolytes, semiconductors or ultrastructures.
