3,5-Dimethylthiophenol and bis(3,5-dimethylphenyl) disulphide have been electro-oxidatively polymerized to poly(2,6-dimethylphenylene sulphide) under mild conditions. The polymer film formed on the electrode has a semi-conductivity of 10-9 S/cm and electrochemical response. Its redox potential at 1.3 V corresponds to a doping-dedoping reaction.
