Abstract In studies of the preparation of polymers of cotton cellulose and acrylonitrile, radiation-polymerized acrylonitrile, having decreased solubility in N,N-dimethylformamide, was produced at higher radiation dosages. The infrared spectra of these polymers and chemically initiated polymers showed no marked differences. This indicated that change in structure probably resulted from a dehydrogenation followed by cross-linking between polymers. (M.C.G.)
