Abstract

Ce(IV) salt-malonic acid or citric acid initiator systems were used for the polymerization of acrylamide in the presence of electrolysis. This allowed Ce(III) to be converted to Ce(IV) during polymerization. Graphite, silver, chromium/nickel, lead, platinum and stainless-steel electrodes were used. The highest polymerization yield was obtained with a stainless-steel electrode.
