The oxidative polymerization of 3,6-phenylenediamino-2,5-dichlorobenzoquinone is studied for the first time, and the monomer is shown to exhibit a high reactivity in this process. The rate of its polymerization is much higher than that of aniline and 3,6-dianiline-2,5-dichlorobenzoquinone, and the induction period of oxidation is absent. The kinetic features of the oxidative polymerization of 3,6-phenylenediamino-2,5-dichlorobenzoquinone are investigated by measuring variation in the redox potential of the reaction mixture in the course of time. It is found that the kinetic curves of 3,6-phenylenediamino-2,5-dichlorobenzoquinone polymerization do not follow the S-shaped pattern typical of aniline polymerization. The mechanism of polymerization proceeding through a number of successive tautomeric rearrangements is advanced. The structure of the polymers is studied by FTIR and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. During the reaction of oxidative polymerization, cyclization processes occur to form phenazine and phenoxazine rings which give rise to a ladder polyconjugated polymer. The effect of reaction conditions, such as the concentration of reagents, their ratio, and the pH of the reaction medium, on the process is investigated.
