  • Despite over 50 years of research, control of the stereochemistry in free-radical polymerization using simple and scalable methods remains elusive for most common monomers. An attractive strategy, which has received considerable attention, is the use of Lewis acids to coordinate and constrain the terminal and penultimate side-chains of the growing polymer radical. Unfortunately, the control achieved to date usually is modest at best. In this work, a combination of theory and experiment has been… CONTINUE READING
