Abstract:

An investigation was made of radical polymerization of acrylonitrile in the presence of furan derivatives furfural, furfuryl alcohol and sylvan. Their inhibiting effect was shown in the process of polymerization, whereby furfural appears to be the strongest inhibiting agent, even stronger than furfuryl alcohol and sylvan. Radiation-chemical initiation of AN polymerization was carried out in the presence of furan derivatives under the effect of gamma radiations at various dosages. It was shown that the given process affects a series of factors. Furan derivatives exert an inhibiting effect on the reaction of polymerization, whereby in this case the strongest inhibiting agent also appears to be furfural. Author
