Polymer formulations are disclosed and described herein that comprise: at least one polymer comprising at least one hydroxy functional group, at least one acid source, and at least one acid-activated crosslinker that reacts with the polymer. In contemplated embodiments, these polymer formulations are curable at relatively low temperatures, as compared to those polymer formulations not comprising contemplated crosslinkers. Transparent films formed from these contemplated formulations are also disclosed. Organic transparent film compositions are also disclosed that comprise: at least one at least one phenol-based polymer, at least one solvent; at least one acid-activated crosslinker; and at least one acid source. Methods of forming organic transparent films with improved transmittance by depositing on a substrate the formulations disclosed herein and curing the formulations or compositions at a temperature of less than about 200° C. Inorganic transparent film compositions are disclosed that include: at least one silanol-based polymer, at least one solvent; at least one acid-activated crosslinker; and at least one acid source. Methods of forming inorganic transparent films are disclosed by depositing on a substrate the formulations disclosed herein and curing the formulations or compositions at a temperature of 200° C. or less.
