Polymerization of vinyl chloride (VC) with tert-butyllithum (tert-BuLi) was investigated from the point of controlled polymerization. The polymerization of VC proceeded at ⫺30°C to give high polymers. The Mn of the polymers increased as a function of the reaction time and polymer yields, although the initiator efficiency was low. Linear dependence of the Mn of the polymer and polymer yields was observed, while Mw/Mn did not change significantly during the polymerization. The polydispersity (Mw/Mn) of the polymer was not narrow probably due to the heterogeneity of the reaction media.
