Results of angular correlation of annihilation radiation and positron annihilation lifetime measurements are presented for five styrene copolymers: poly(co-styrene-phenylmaleimide) and its three derivatives with chlorine as well as foτ one with the OH group substituted in the benzene ring. Ht occurs that the chlorine substituted in three different positions in the benzene ring poly(co-styrene-o (or -m, -p)-chlorophenylmaleimide) inhibits the formation of the positronium to different extent. The

In addition, electric dipole moments were measured for N-X-phenylmaleimide units, to check whether their magnitude influences the positron annihilation parameters. On the basis of the present results no correlation between the positron annihilation parameters and the electric dipole moments of the units was noticed.
