Polymers comprising residues of borane and/or carborane cage compound monomers having at least one polyalkoxy silyl substituent. Such polymers can further comprise one or more reactive matrices and/or co-monomers covalently bound with the cage compound monomer residues. Methods of making and applications for using such polymers are also disclosed.
The present invention was developed with support from the U.S. government under a contract with the United States Department of Energy, Contract No. DE-ACO4-01AL66850. Accordingly, the U.S. government has certain rights in the present invention.
