For the first time, the propagation rate coefficient kp of acrylonitrile has been determined in a broad temperature range in propylene carbonate solution via the pulsed laser polymerization-size exclusion chromatography technique employing a high frequency pulsed laser system. k p was determined to fit the Arrhenius relation ln(kp/L mol-1 s-1) = 14.42 - 1855K/T.
