A experimental study was performed regarding the influence of the base nature and solvent on the reactive intermediate concentration in the base-promoted bissulfonium salts polymerization. Such polymerization reaction is part of a synthetic procedure used to prepare conjugated polymers. In addition, a theoretical study suggest that a one-electron transfer could be involved in the initiation step.
