Abstract:

The reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer polymerization is one of the most important techniques to control the molecular weight and the chain distribution of the polymers made via radical chemistry. Its application to the aqueous dispersed systems is an important step to improve the control of relevant polymers due to the advantages in the control of the reaction and to avoid the environmental issues related to the use of organic solvents. In this review, a brief overview on different techniques used to perform a well-controlled RAFT polymerization in aqueous dispersed systems is critically revised.

Keywords: CRP, RAFT emulsion polymerization, nanoparticles, dispersed systems, capping agent, alive chains.
