Abstract : The patent relates to a method of polymerizing conjugated fluorinated dienes which are rubberlike, flexible at low temperatures, and resistant to mineral oils and other chemicals. More particularly, the invention relates to the use of rhodium salts or complexes as catalysts for the polymerization or copolymerization of conjugated fluorinated dienes to produce high molecular weight elastomers.
