A kinetic study of the cationic polymerization of chloroethyl vinyl ether initiated by the system hydrogen iodide — iodine has been performed in order to understand some particular characteristics of the system. As previously reported by Higashimura the polymerization shows a living character at low temperature in toluene. A polymerization process with a first order in iodine and 0.3 order with respect to monomer, has been observed. These results are consistent with the existence of reversible elementary processes involving iodine and monomer.
