The zwitterion, 1-[4-[(4-hydroxy-1-naphthyl)thio]butyl]quinuclidinium hydroxide inner salt, was synthesized from tetrahydro-1-(4-hydroxy-1-naphthyl)thiophenium hydrochloride and quinuclidine and characterized by NMR and IR spectroscopy. Polymerization of the zwitterion was studied over the temperature range 175-225°C. The polymer was identified as poly(1,4-piperidinediylethyleneoxy-1,4-naphthylenethiotetramethylene) based on NMR and IR spectroscopy. The polymer was found to contain 3-butenylthio and 4-hydroxy-1-naphthyl end groups. Based on the signal area of the olefinic end group, the polymer M⊼n varied between 8500 and 13,000. The highest molecular weight was achieved at the lowest temperature, indicating that termination became more favored at higher temperature. A mechanism is proposed to describe the polymerization. © 1996 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
