The absolute rate constants for the propagation and termination of free-radical polymerization were determined by the convenient kinetic data without need for photo-illumination technique. The extent of recombination reaction occurring in the termination reactions can be obtained using the same experimental data. The homopolymerizations of styrene and methyl methacrylate are illustrated. The results obtained by this method are close to those in the literature.
