he redox copolymerization of acrylonitrile with acrylamide in N,N - dimethylformamide (DMF) containing K2S2O8 and AgNO3 was carried out. The resulting copolymers were soluble in this solution. A white floppy mass was obtained, when poltmerizing solution was poured in cold methanol. The copolymers were formed taking different feed ratios of monomers and concentrations of the initiators at 600C. As the concentration of acrylamide increased in the feed ratio, copolymer yields consierably increased. The copolymerization was completely inhibited by 2, 2 – diphenyl – 1 – picrylhydrazyl suggesting a free radical reaction.
