Within this text, for the first time the synthesis, structural characteristics, physical properties, applications and potential applications of polysiloxanes, polycarbosilanes, polysilazanes, polysilanes, and other silicon-containing polymers are detailed. For years to come this book will be the first point of entry for those seeking to learn about the very significant differences that exist between carbon-based polymers and those with silicon in their backbone.
