Reversible Addition Fragmentation Chain Transfer Polymerization of Water-Soluble, Ion-Containing Monomers
Polymers and High Performance Materials
Reversible add ition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization has been the focus of extensive research over the last several years. RAFT allows for the tailoring of polymers with complex architectures including block, graft, comb, and star structures with predetermined molecular weights, end group functionality, and narrow molecular weight distributions. In this chapter we present an overview of the synthesis and solution properties of water-soluble, ioncontaining monomers synthesized via RAFT.
