İstanbul University, Institute of Marine Sciences and Management, Istanbul, Turkey Acrylonitrile and its degradation product acrylamide were detected in sea water near Yalova, Sea of Marmara following spill of acrylonitrile from a tank caused by the earthquake (17 Aug. 1999). The determination and detection of acrylonitrile and acrylamide were made by GC/MS analysis. Acrylonitrile was determined as 0.157-2.88 µg/1 in sea water after the accident at 27 Aug. İ 999 and 0.075-0.178 µg/i at 9 Sept. 1999. Acrylamide as a degradation product of acrylonitrile was found only in one sample collected after the accident. This is first record of determination of acrylonitrile and detection of acrilamide in sea water at 17 Dec. 1999. Keywords : GC/MS, ACRYLONITRILE, ACRYLAMIDE,SEAWATER
