Anodic oxidation of phenols gave the corresponding poly(1,4-phenyleneoxide)s by selecting the electrolysis conditions to prevent passivation of the electrode. The mechanism of the polymerization was discussed based on electrochemical measurements. Applications of the electro-oxidative polymerization were also described.
