The unsaturated aldehyde acrolein is a suitable source for different types of high polymers. If it is regarded as a 1,3-diene analogous to butadiene, then all the known modes of its polymerization can be systematically described and further possibilities predicted. A survey is given on this basis of the results obtained during the past decade. It is shown that acrolein is one of the few monomers which contain two polymerizable groups of differing reactivities. This fact allows the formation from acrolein of new homopolymers, copolymers, and graft copolymers, a scope which is not encountered with many other monomers.
