Inorganic and organometallic polymers: a review

Abstract

Inorganic polymeric materials comprise a very unique area of polymer science. Thesemacromolecules which contain inorganic elements as part of their main chain structureor as pendent group, attract considerable attention as speciality materials with unique properties and novel applications. Two main classes of these compounds: inorganic and organometallic polymers, which represent a growing field of research, have found broad diverse applications. As, organic and inorganic components with countless combinations are found in these classes of polymers they offer a wide range of interesting properties and applications. In this paper, the main properties of some more important classes of these compounds, including wholly inorganic polymers inorganic-organic polymers, organometallic polymers and hybrid organic-inorganic networks are discussed on the basis of their structural features, and some examples of the novel applications of these materials are presented. organic-inorganic polymers; organometallic; structural features
