Abstract

Controlled potential electrolysis was employed to accomplish homopolymerization of maleic anhydride, by direct electron transfer. The solvent used in the polymerization studies was acetonitrile-dimethylformamide mixture (1:1) with the supporting electrolyte tetrabutylammonium tetra fluoroborate. A brown paramagnetic polymer was obtained from the catholyte, upon electroreduction of monomer.
