In electropolymerization, as in electrodeposition use is made of electrodes, an electrolyte, and a source of electric power. Oxidatlon or reduction can take place at the electrode and radicals may be formed. These radicals can react with unsaturated monomers in the electrolyte and polymerization can take place on one of the electrodes with formation of a coating. The electrochemical oxidation by phenol function in this case of substituted phenol derivatives leads to polymer films of polyphenylene oxide. The electrochemical polymerization of o-cresol was carried out in alkaline medium using mild steel as anode and stainless steel as cathode. Various concantrations of monomer with various addii were studied. The polymer film formed has an average thii of 10-12~T. he polymer film was subjected to IR Spectra for confirmation and the properties of the coated mild steel substrate were evaluated.
