Abstract:   Copolymers of 2-pyrrolidone and its C-methyl derivatives were prepared with anionic catalysts. A methyl substituent on the pyrrolidone ring notably decreased polymerizability more or less according to its position. The incorporation of the methyl units depended also on the nature of the catalyst cation. Transitions, melting points, and degradation of resulting compounds were studied and the results enabled us to determine the copolymer structure. The data of thermal properties indicate that the nature of catalyst cation plays an important part in obtaining true random copolymers: this is confirmed by study of the incorporation ratio.
