Abstract : Our objective was to provide research training opportunities for graduate students in NMR characterization of polymers, in particular polymers for NLO applications. We collaborated with the Allcock group at Penn State and have a large paper in press in Macromolecules on polyphosphazene NLO polymers. The methodology was to use P-3l and C-l3 MAS NMR to study in detail the temperature dependent main-chain and NLO side-group dynamics in two NLO polymers. We studied photochemical cross-linking in host polymer systems and verified the 2+2 mechanism that was central to the original proposal. This was first communicated in Macromolecules, and other work will be forthcoming.
