Abstract

The anodic polymerization of methacrylamide at Fe-electrodes was carried out in the presence of H2O2. No polymer formation occurred in the absence of H2O2. Fe-anode dissolves to furnish Fe (II) ions that decompose H2O2 to produce hydroxyl radicals HO which initiate a free radical polymerization. The reaction continues even after the cessation of electrolysis. The polymer yield increased with the increase of current density and monomer concentration. However the polymer yield initially increased and then began to decrease with the increasing concentration of H2O2. This is because of the decomposition of H2O2 to generate O2 which retards the polymer formation.
