A series of phenyl ring di-substituted α,α′-dichloro-p-xylene monomers were copolymerized in situ onto a cross-linked chloromethylated polystyrene resin. A phase-transfer catalyst was employed to facilitate this multiphase heterogeneous polymerization. The electrical as well as the thermogravimetric properties of the conducting grafted resins are reported.
