Diallyldimethylammonium chloride, which is an acidic salt with numerous applications, was polymerized in water at three different monomer concentrations and at three different pHs which the monomer is in charged form. Reactions were investigated by the automatic continuous online monitoring of polymerization technique. Conversion, molecular weight, and reduced viscosity were monitored. The reaction is found to be second-order with respect to monomer. Rate constants and molecular weights tend to increase with pH and concentration. POLYM. ENG. SCI., 54:1350-1356, 2014.
