The relative reactivities of vinyl monomers under ionic conditions have been discussed using a Q-e or q-ε map. It has been deduced that the larger the value of the polarity factor e (or ε) and the resonance factor Q (or q) of the monomer, the greater the susceptibility of the monomers to ionic catalysis. The possibility of new ionic polymerization reaction and the relative reactivity of monomers in ionic copolymerization have been discussed. As the result of this scheme, it seems that the anionic polymerization of vinylidene chloride is possible.
