Electroinitiated polymerization of bis(trichlorophenoxo) ethylenediamine copper (II) complex was carried out in dimethyl-formamide at various anodic peak potentials of the complex. The oxidation and reduction peak potentials were determined by cyclic voltammetry. These potentials were measured in tetrabutylammonium fluoroborate-dimethylformamide supporting electrolyte-solvent couple at room temperature. Polymerization reactions were carried out under air and nitrogen atmospheres using a constant potential approach at room temperature. The kinetics of the polymerization were followed by cyclic voltammetry. The polymers obtained were characterized by 1H n.m.r.,13C n.m.r. and FTi.r. spectroscopy and differential scanning calorimetry. Vapour pressure (isopiestic) was used for the molecular weight determinations. The polymers obtained at different potentials were found to be similar in structure.
