Abstract: Poly(2-amino-4-tert-butylphenol), poly(2A-4TBP), was synthesized from monomer aqueous solution using either electrochemical or chemical oxidation procedures. Several spectroscopic characterization techniques were employed to gain information on the chemical structure and redox behavior of the obtained materials. It was found that the chemical polymerization product could be described as an oligomer mixture containing up to 16 monomer units. In parallel to other polymers derived from o-aminophenol, phenoxazine rings constitute also the basic structure of poly(2A-4TBP). In addition, the occurrence of N-N couplings, which are favored by the presence of the voluminous tert-butyl substituent, seems also relevant. No significant structural differences were found between the chemically or electrochemically synthesized materials.
