Abstract

A novel and general “living” radical polymerization, namely, Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization, ATRP, affords various pathways towards the synthesis of tailor — made (co)polymers with predetermined molecular weights up to Mn ≈ 105 and molecular weight distributions as narrow as 1.05. This paper describes four different approaches to “living” ATRP, i.e., iodide-based degenerative transfer, alkyl halide / transition metal species promoted halogen atom transfer, R-X / Mt n / Lx; radical initiator / transition metal species promoted halogen atom transfer, I-I / Mt n+1 / Lx; and alkyl halide/radical initiator / transition metal species promoted halogen atom transfer, R-X / I-I / Mt n+1 / Lx.
