Ammo-terminated poly(acrylamide) of high molecular weight has been electrochemically synthesised, using titanium(III)-hydroxylamine redox system in aqueous sulphuric acid phase. Polymer is characterised by spectral analysis and molecular weight determination. Influence of various parameters like, concentration of titanium(IV) sulphate, hydroxylamine sulphate, sulphuric acid monomer, temperature and cathodic current on polymer yield has been studied. Suitable mechanism for Ti(III)-NH2OH initiated electro polymerisation of acrylamide is proposed.
