Polyphosphazenes are polymers containing nitrogen as part of their backbone; they are commonly used in O-rings, pipelines, and seals in oil, fuel delivery, and storage systems. New polyphosphazene derivatives have been proven biocompatible, biodegradable, and bioactive, and some of them are being investigated for possible medical applications.
Harry Allcock’s Chemistry and Applications of Polyphosphazenes provides the only published compilation of material on polyphosphazenes, detailing synthetic methodologies and physical properties for each substance. Allcock explains the critical relationships between structure and properties, aiding the practicing researcher in the design of polyphosphazenes with specific applications. Professionals and students in polymer science, engineering, and industries such as rubbers and plastics will find Chemistry and Applications of Polyphosphazenes to be an invaluable text.
Harry R. Allcock is an Evan Pugh Professor of Chemistry at Pennsylvania State University. He also has affiliations with the university's Departments of Chemical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. He received the International Award of the Polymer Society of Japan and was elected to the National Academy of Engineering.
