Abstract: The crosslinked polystyrene-polycaprolactone , PS-PCL-, block copolymers were prepared by the copolymerization of styrene and poly(caprolacton dimethylmethacrylate) (PCL-DM). The molecular weights of polycaprolactone, PCL, PCL-DM were 1250 and 2000. The swelling in H_2O or CHCl_3 of the sulfonated and unsulfonated block copolymers were determined under comparable conditions and investigated. The capacities of the obtained ion exchange resins were 1.31 and 1.10 meq/g.
