An improved linearization method is proposed for determining the monomer reactivity ratios of free‐radical copolymerizations by fitting the data of cumulative copolymer compositions and overall weight fractional conversions, or cumulative copolymer compositions and residual monomer compositions of the reaction mixture. The reactivity ratios of monomers for four different copolymerization reactions are determined. The results are very close to those of literature reports and account well for the experimental results.
