Inorganic Polymers

  • Inorganic polymers are polymers with a skeletal structure that does not include carbon atoms. 
  • Polymers containing inorganic and organic components are named hybrid polymers.
  • One of the best known examples is polydimethylsiloxane, otherwise known commonly as silicone rubber. It has a repeat unit based on silicon and oxygen.
  • Inorganic Polymers are materials generally rich in aluminosilicates, conventionally  formed by alkali hydroxide or alkali silicate activation of a solid precursor.
