Summary

A route to soluble boron-containing polymers has been developed. The synthesis and characterization of phosphorus-containing monomeric and polymeric derivatives of B10H14 are given. Preparation and characterization of boron-containing ceramic materials from these molecular and macromolecular species are discussed. Success has been achieved in the areas of ceramic fiber and monolith production and in the area of binder applications for composites of advanced ceramic materials.
