Linear Block Copolymers

Part of the Advances in Polymer Science book series (POLYMER, volume 159)


There have been numerous literature reports on the preparation of block copolymers using CRP methods. These copolymers range from those synthesized wholly by CRP to those that involve either transformation from other living polymerization techniques (anionic, cationic, ring-opening, etc.) to CRP, or functionalization of a macromolecule that can then be used as a macroinitiator for CRP. Each of these methods will be addressed separately. Nitroxides were predominantly used for styrene containing copolymers, whereas ATRP was successful for the acrylates and methacrylates as well [42].
