The authors suggested a new mechanism for the interpretation of cationic lactam polymerization according to which in the chain propagation reaction, through the appropriate intermediates, compounds belonging to various polymer homologous series are formed and additional polymerization processes are superimposed onto the original ones. On the basis of the new mechanism a kinetic model has been developed by the computer simulation of which rate and equilibrium constants could be determined. The latter enabled, a good quantitative description of polymerization.
