Abstract

Anodic oxidation of 2,6-disubstituted phenols gave poly(2,6-disubstituted-1,4-phenyleneoxide)s quantitatively by using dichloromethane and tetraethyl ammonium bromide as the solvent and the supporting electrolyte respectively. Phenol was also electro-oxidatively polymerized to yield oligo(1,4-phenyleneoxide) with molecular weight of 1200 approx. 2500. The 2-step polymerization and the polymerization in the presence of bisphenol were carried out to increase the molecular weight of the oligo(phenyleneoxide). The mechanism of the electro-oxidative polymerization was discussed by electrochemical and ESR measurements.
