Acrylamide was polymerized by eeric ion Ce (IV)-4,4′-azobis(4-cyano pentanol)(ACP) redox pair in aqueous nitric acid under nitrogen atmosphere. The rate of polymerization is proportional to [M]2,[ACP] and [Ce(IV)]−1. Termination mechanism which was exclusively linear offered one azo group per polymeric chain. The obtained polyacrylamide can be used as a water soluble initiator for vinyl polymerization.
