Electroinitiated polymerization of butadiene sulfone was achieved by direct electron transfer in acetonitrile-tetrabutylammonium fluoroborate system by controlled potential electrolysis technique. High conversions were obtained at reasonable temperatures and polymerization times. The polymer was found to be composed of linear segments along with some cyclic units. The effect of monomer concentration, temperature, and polymerization potential on the rate of polymerization was investigated. Temperature and polymerization potential have positive effects on the rate of polymerization. The effect of ultrasonic vibration was also investigated by conducting electrolyses at different monomer concentrations in the presence and absence of ultrasonic vibration. It was observed that the rate of polymerization increases significantly in the presence of ultrasonic vibration. The inverse relationship between the rate of polymerization and monomer concentration was observed in presence and absence of ultrasonic vibration.
