Abstract It has been suggested that the radiation-induced solidstate polymerization of acrylamide is a heterogeneous reaction, that is, it goes by a two-phase mechanism. Acconding to this concept, the reaction proceeds at definite sites within the crystal, forming regions of pure polymer imbedded in pure monomer with further reaction at the interface between the two. In order to test this suggestion, a series of rctation diagrams (x-ray diffraction) was run on an acrylamide crystal in various stages of polymerization. The results indicate that the diagrams are a superposition of monomer and polymer patterns, and that the reaction proceeds by a two-phase mechanism. (D.L.C.)
