Nanostructured functional materials prepared by atom transfer radical polymerization
The fundamentals of the technique are discussed, along with how it can be used to synthesize macromolecules with controlled molecular architecture, and how their self-assembly can create nanostructured functional materials. Expand
Inverse miniemulsion ATRP: a new method for synthesis and functionalization of well-defined water-soluble/cross-linked polymeric particles.
Higher colloidal stability, higher swelling ratios, and better controlled degradability indicated that the nanogels prepared by ATRP were superior to their corresponding counterparts prepared by conventional free radical polymerization (RP) in inverse miniemulsion. Expand
Diminishing catalyst concentration in atom transfer radical polymerization with reducing agents
The concept of initiators for continuous activator regeneration (ICAR) in atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) is introduced, whereby a constant source of organic free radicals works toExpand
Understanding atom transfer radical polymerization: effect of ligand and initiator structures on the equilibrium constants.
Equilibrium constants in Cu-based atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) were determined for a wide range of ligands and initiators in acetonitrile at 22 degrees C and excellent correlations of the equilibrium constants with the Cu(II/I) redox potentials and the carbon-halogen bond dissociation energies were observed. Expand
Determination of equilibrium constants for atom transfer radical polymerization.
Modified Fischer's equations for the persistent radical effect of Atom transfer radical polymerization equilibrium constants (K(ATRP) were determined using modified equations that take into account the changes in catalyst and initiator concentrations by detailed kinetic simulations. Expand
Highly Efficient “Click” Functionalization of Poly(3-azidopropyl methacrylate) Prepared by ATRP
To prepare polymers with pendant functionality capable of participating in highly efficient CuI-catalyzed 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of azide and alkynes, monomers with acetylene or azido groups wereExpand
Macromolecular engineering by atom transfer radical polymerization.
This Perspective presents recent advances in macromolecular engineering enabled by ATRP with emphasis on various catalytic/initiation systems that use parts-per-million concentrations of Cu catalysts and can be run in environmentally friendly media, e.g., water. Expand
"Green" atom transfer radical polymerization: from process design to preparation of well-defined environmentally friendly polymeric materials.
Chemical Reviews is published by the American Chemical Society. 1155 Sixteenth Street N.W., Washington, DC 20036 “Green” Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization: From Process Design to Preparation ofExpand
