The kinetics of the polymerization of tetrahydrofuran by acetyl perchlorate in methylene chloride solution was studied, and the results were compared with those previously reported by using perchloric acid/acetic anhydride as catalyst. The initiation and propagation mechanisms are discussed by taking into account the influence of the counterion. The initiation reaction takes place instantaneously, but the propagation proceeds by macroesters and macroions and the contribution of macroester to… CONTINUE READING
