A direct method is proposed for determining the concentration of active centers by introducing the stable radical 2, 2, 6, 6-tetramethyl-4-hydroxypiperidine-1-oxyl at the commencement, and during the course of, the polymerization process of tetrafluoroethylene. On the basis of the data obtained, the rate constants of the elementary processes are calculated.
