Abstract: The effect of divinylbenzene and N,N-methylenebisacrylamide on the polymerization of acrylamide in inverse microemulsion was studied. Studying the polymerization kinetics, polymer particle sizes, degree of swellability measurements, and the chemical composition of the products we have found that in the presence of bi-unsaturated vinyl monomers the character of conversion curve as well as crosslinking and particle sizes of the products have been changed. The interpretation of the obtained results is based on previously proposed mechanism of the initiation of free radical polymerization and formation and growth of polymer particles in inverse microemulsion.
