Abstract

Abstract Cationic polymerization of tetrahydrofuran (THF) initiated by difunctional peroxidic initiators bis(4-bromomethyl benzoyl) peroxide and 2,5-dimethyl 2,5-di(4-bromomethyl benzoyl peroxy)hexane is described. Poly-THF samples possessing peroxidic groups thus obtained were used in the polymerization of styrene at 80° to obtain THF-styrene block copolymers in high yields.
