Acrylamide was polymerized by electrochemical oxidation in glacial acetic acid medium containing sodium acetate. The influence of monomer concentration and current density on polymerization were examined. The polymerization is possibly initiated by the species produced by the anodic reaction of the supporting electrolyte. Introduction of hydroquinone into the system prevents the formation of polymer, indicating a free radical mechanism. Influence on the addition of ferric salt on polymerization was also examined. Molecular weight of the polymer has been examined by viscometry method. The chain structure of the polymer has been identified by I R spectrum of the polymer
