Studies of living polymers have greatly enriched our knowledge of the behavior of ions and ion-pairs in organic media. Future investigations will lead to more detailed knowledge of these interesting species. Especially, intramolecular associations or intramolecular solvation by the polymer chains provide promising field for additional studies, and one example of such phenomena was reported recently by Fisher and Szwarc (42).
