## Abstract:

Bordism theories $S{U_ \ast }({Z_2},all)$ for*SU*-manifolds with involution and $S{U_ \ast }({Z_2},free)$ for

*SU*-manifolds with free involution are defined. The latter is studied by use of the

*SU*-bordism spectral sequence of $B{Z_2}$, and the orders of the spheres ${S^{4n + 3}}$ with antipodal action are determined. It is shown that $S{U_{2k}}({Z_2},free) \to S{U_{2k}}({Z_2},all)$ is monic, and that an element of $S{U_{2k}}({Z_2},all)$ bounds as a unitary involution if and only if it is a multiple of the nonzero class $\alpha \in S{U_1}$.
