Abstract

The polymerization of acrylamide (AAm) initiated by redox pair: the ceric ammonium nitrate[Ce(IV)]-hydroxy containing thermolabile azo compounds (R) has been investigated in aqueous nitric acid at 20 degrees C. It was determined that how the rate of polymerization depends on [AAm], [R] (1 or 2) and [Ce(IV)], respectively. The relationships between degree of polymerization and AAm-, R-, and Ce(IV)-concentrations were also evaluated.
