Summary

The aim of this paper is to present recent advances in the technology of surfmers [polymerizable­ surfactants – in Part I)], inisurfs (surface-active initiators) and transurfs (surface-active transfer agents). In this part, inisurfs and transurfs are described and discussed. Due to the development of controlled living polymerization, inisurfs and transurfs are becoming more and more significant. Inisurfs are used for atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) process and transurfs can be applied for reversible addition fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) process. Preparation of nanospheres using a transurfs has also been reported.
Keywords: inisurf, surface-active initiator, atom transfer radical polymerization, transurf, surface-active transfer agent, reversible addition fragmentation chain transfer, emulsion polymerization, living polymerization
