The polymerization of toluene was carried out in 1, 2-dichloroethane and nitrobenzene using BF3O(C2H5)2 as supporting electrolyte at platinum electrodes. The polymers were formed as a black mass only at the anode surface. The yield and conductivity of Poly(toluene)or poly(methyl phenylene) depend on the nature of solvents. Cyclic voltammetry measurements suggest that the polymer film is fairly stable.
