The effects of the concentrations of monomer, cyclohexanol, V5+, H2SO4, HSO4-, SO42-, Cl and ionic strength at 40 to 60°C on the rate of V5+ disappearance and the rate of polymerisation of acrylonitrile were studied. From the experimental results, it was concluded that the organic free radicals formed during the decomposition of the V5+-cyclohexanol complex, initiated polymerisation and that the polymer radicals were terminated by V5+ ion. An appropriate kinetic scheme was proposed and the various rate and energy parameters were evaluated.
