In this work, sulfonated poly(phenylene sulfide) (SPPS) was prepared by demethylation with aqueous NaOH solution after poly[methyl[4-(phenylthio)phenyl]sulfonium trifluoromethanesulfonate](PPST) was sulfonated with fumic sulfonic acid(10% $SO_{3}-H_{2}SO_{4}$). PPST soluble in organic solvents was synthesiszed by self-condensation polymerization of methyl-(phenylthio)phenyl sulfoxide(MPPSO). SPPS showed IR bands of asymmetric O=S=O stretching at $1200cm^{-1}$ and S-O stretching at $621cm^{-1}$ from $-SO_{3}H$ group. From the result, it could be known that sulfonic acid groups were introduced to poly(phenylene sulfide). when PPST was sulfonated for 12hr at $150^{\circ}C$, 1.48 sulfonic acid groups were introduced per repeat unit. The weight average molecular weight(Mw) of PPST and SPPS determined by high temperature GPC were 118323 and 131204, respectively. The SPPS exhibited adsorption capacity of ammonia gas $9.67mmol\;NH_{3}/g$ and it was much higher than that of active carbon or silica gel.
