The effect of sodium formate on pH-value and redox potential in an equimolar solution of about 72% formid acid as activator with various amounts of glyoxalic acid has been investigated. The effect of the salt of activator in the system on the solubility of polyamide- 6 in the reaction medium .and on the reduction of polymer degradation during heating has been studied. A dependence between pH-value of the solution and its redox potential versus polymer degradation (decrease in relative viscosity) has been observed for various values of the reaction temperature.
