Kinetics of solution photopolymerization of acrylonitrile(AN) with sensitizer, such as $NaSCN,\;KSCN,\;Ba(SCN)_2,\;NH_4SCN,\;ZnCl_2$ and $Na_2SeO_3$, were studied using UV crosslinker at various monomer concentrations($1.8{\sim}7.58mo1/1$), sensitizer concentrations($10{\sim}60%$), reaction temperature($10{\sim}70^{\circ}C$), energy intensities($1,000{\sim}9,900{\mu}J/cm^2$) at isothermal condition under nitrogen atmosphere. Under the irradiation of high pressure mercury lamp(${\lambda}=365nm$). High conversion and uniform molecular weight were obtained compare to thermal polymerization at reaction temperature of $50^{\circ}C$, reaction time of 3hr and 50% NaSCN without any initiator. Their kinetic model was as follows : $R_p=0.0142[M]^{0.82}[I]^{0.49}[S]^{0.52}$ exp(-1.33/RT).
