The electroinitiated polymerization of 2-chloroethylvinyl ether via controlled potential conditions has been achieved. The kinetics of the polymerization were determined by cyclic voltammetry at different temperatures in dichloromethane (DM) and acetonitrile (AN). The post-polymerization kinetics were followed with a similar technique. It was found that polymerization was twice as fast in DM as in AN. In DM, both the polymerization and the post-polymerization rates increased with decreasing temperature, whereas in AN the reverse behavior was observed.
