Abstract: Phosphorus-containing polymers were synthesized using a "green" radiation-induced reaction at room temperature in the presence of ionic liquids (ILs). The nature of ILs allowed us to adjust the properties of reaction media (dimethyl sulfoxide, DMSO–benzene solvents). The effects of various factors on the efficiency of the synthesis of phosphorus-containing polymers are discussed.
