The cationic polymerization of cis, trans-2,5-dihydro-2,5-dimethoxy furan (DHMF) was studied in the presence of HClO_4, in acetonitrile. Different reaction parameters were investigated such as initiator concentration and temperature with duration. Obtained polymers were soluble in dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) and dimethylformamide (DMF) and the M_n value was calculated as 2700 g/mol by cryoscopy. The FT-IR and ^1H-NMR results indicate that the polymerization proceeds via ring opening. Thermal properties were studied by DSC and TGA.
