This review provides a survey of Atom Transfer Radical Addition (ATRA) and Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization (ATRP) with the special emphasis on the copper mediated processes. Mechanistic features of these techniques are reviewed together with the major components of ATRP and examples of materials prepared by ATRP.

Keywords: Atom Transfer Radical Addition (ATRA), Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization (ATRP), thermal decomposition, Acetonitrile, Ethyl acetate, inner-sphere electron transfer (ISET), 2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidinyl-1-oxy (TEMPO), dimethylaminoethyl
