Abstract : Cationic bulk polymerization of 1,3-dioxolan has been carried out in sealed ampoules using a high vacuum technique. Specific volumes of pure monomer and polymer in solution of its own monomer have been measured. The effect of short polymer chains on the equilibrium is discussed briefly. Values of the free energy of polymerization of one mole of pure liquid monomer to one base-mole of amorphous polymer are computed making allowance for the non-ideal mixing.
