Monomers, such as acrylic acid and acryamide, are significantly stabilized by strong intermolecular interaction. The interaction is not as important in the polymer case, because its steric constraints. Therefore, H reduced. Although the polymerization of all the monomers in the previous Table is thermodynamically feasible, very specific reaction conditions are often required to achieve kinetic feasibility, dependent on rate of initiation, rate of propagation and rate of termination + X X X XX X X k td k tc m n x = n+m+2
