This paper describes the results of plasma- and ozone-induced graft polymerization of acrylamides, together with the amount of peroxides formed by the plasma treatment and the ozonization. It is concluded that both the treatments of polymer surfaces by plasma and ozone produce polymeric peroxides which are capable of initiating graft polymerization, even if the treatments are conducted under a mild condition. An advantage of the ozonization over the plasma treatment is easy and uniform introduction of peroxides on the surface of molded products even with complicated shapes.
