Progress in controlled/living polymerization (CLP) in aqueous media.
Part III. Controlled/living polymerization in aqueous media
Polimery 2001, No 10, 663
SummaryA review with 69 refs. covering ionic polymerizations, coordination polymerizations ROMP, radical polymerizations such as degenerative transfer radical polymerization (DTRP) including iodine transfer polymerization and reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT polymerization), nitroxide-mediated polymerization (NMP) and atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP). CLP in aqueous media, though developing rapidly, is still in its infancy. Precise manipulation of the polymerization process in aqueous dispersed media should enable various polymers with tailored properties to be prepared in the near future.
