Abstract

Polyaromatic sulfides are efficiently and conveniently prepared by cationic oxidative polymerization. Diphenyl disulfides are quantitatively polymerized to yield poly(p-phenylene sulfide)s as white powders whose structure predominantely contains 1,4-phenylene sulfide bonds. The disulfides are oxidized to phenylbis(phenylthio)- sulfonium cations as active species of the polymerization. Repeating the oxidation and electrophilic reaction of the cation to the p-position of disulfides yields the polymer.
