Tertiary organic hyponitrite usable as initiators for polymerizing ethylenically unsaturated compounds are prepared by reacting an alkali metal, alkaline earth, ammonium or substituted ammonium salt of hyponitrite, such as sodium hyponitrite, with a tertiary organic halide, such as tert-butyl chloride, in the presence of one or more weak Friedel-Crafts catalysts, such as ferric or zinc chloride, and in a solution of a neutral solvent.
