The polymerization of the vinyl monomer was carried out in water, using either dimethylbis(ethylthio)tin or triethyl(p-tolylthio)tin as an initiator. The polymerization required the coexistence of the iron(III) ion. The initiating species was concluded to be a thiyl radical. Macromolecular tin mercaptide was much more effective than monomeric tin mercaptide.
