Reaction mixtures in which polymerization processes proceed are investigated both in an electric field and under classical conditions. The observed kinetic effects are explained using a model concept of the primary contribution to the revealed field effects from the dissociation of ion pairs due to the spatial redistribution of ions. This model may be applied to both cationic and anionic polymerization processes.
