Abstract: Acrylonitrile-butyl acrylate (A/B) copolymers of different monomer compositions were prepared by bulk polymerization using a free radical initiator. Copolymer compositions were determined by elemental analyses and comonomer reactivity ratios were determined using a non-linear least squares errors-in-variables model. Terminal and penultimate reactivity ratios were calculated using the observed monomer triad sequence distribution determined from 13C{H} n.m.r. spectra. The triad sequence distribution was used to calculate diad concentrations, conditional probability parameters, number-average sequence lengths and block character of the copolymers. The observed triad sequence concentrations determined from 13C{1H} n.m.r. spectra agreed well with those calculated from reactivity ratios.
