Polymerisation of acrylonitrile must be carried out under

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;\text{Anionic conditions}\\(b)\; \text{Cationic conditions}\\(c)\;\text{Any one of them}\\(d)\;\text{Both of them}\end{array}$

1 Answer

Acrylonitrile $(CH_2=CH-CN)$ contains an electron with drawing (-CN) group which can stabilize the carbanion intermediate .Since,in anionic polymerisation ,carbanion intermediates are produced,therefore polymerization of acrylonitrile must be carried out under anionic conditions.
Hence (a) is the correct answer.
