The nature of the species that mediate living carbocationic polymerization of isobutylene (IB) coinitiated by Friedel-Crafts acids (FCA) in the presence of electron pair donors (ED) has been investigated. Free EDs are inhibitors of IB polymerization. The results given in this study are in sharp contrast to those obtained with polymerization of vinyl ethers.
