Reversible Deactivation Radical Polymerization

Synthesis and Applications of Functional Polymers

Edited by: Nikhil K. Singha and Jimmy Mays

This book describes strategies and mechanism of reversible deactivation radical polymerization (RDRP) to synthesize functional polymers. Several approaches such as atom transfer radical polymerization and the combination of click chemistry and RDRP are summarized. Contributors from interdisciplinary fields highlight applications in nanotechnology, self-healing materials, oil and water resistant coatings and controlled drug delivery systems.

  • Nitroxide-, reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer- and transition metal-mediated polymerization
  • Atom transfer radical polymerization, thiol- and Diels-Alders based click chemistry
  • Nanoparticles and polymers for biomedical application
