Polyphosphazenes was synthesized and their self assembly behavior was observed as reported in our previous work [1–5]. A number of experiments were carried out to study the polymerization behavior at various conditions of the polymerization time and temperature. The experimental data were analyzed by graphical and statistical methods and it was found that the polymerization phenomena was controlled by the synthesis time, i.e. Mw = Moeksts, where Mw is molecular weight of the polymer at time ts, Mo (=203.24) is pre-exponential factor in the model and Ms (=1.0686) is synthesis rate constant for the polymer.
