Description:

Novel and diversified macromolecular structures, which include polymers with designed topologies (top), compostions (middle), and functionalities (bottom), can be prepared by atom transfer radical polymerization processes. These polymers can be synthesized from a large variety of monomers that can undergo radical polymerization under undemanding conditions in the presence of the redox active transition metal complex as a catalyst and alkyl(pseudo)halides as initiators.
