From cationic ring-opening polymerization to atom transfer radical polymerization (in English)

Polimery 2014, No 1, 24


DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.2014.024

Summary

Roots of controlled radical polymerization, including atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP), originate in living ionic polymerizations accompanied by reversible deactivation, such as cationic ring-opening polymerization of tetrahydrofuran and other heterocyclics. Recent developments in ATRP, including mechanistic understanding, synthesis of polymers with precisely controlled architecture and some applications of polymers prepared by ATRP are presented.


Key words: cationic ring-opening polymerization, tetrahydrofuran, atom transfer radical polymerization, ATRP, controlled radical polymerization, block copolymers
