Conference Paper

In this study five xanthate (Reversible Addition-Fragmentation chain Transfer (RAFT)/Macromolecular Design through Interchange of Xanthates (MADIX)) agents were synthesized, namely monofunctional, difunctional, trifunctional and tetrafunctional species of the form S=C(O-Z)-S-R, with different leaving groups and different activating moieties some of which are completely novel. Polyvinyl acetates (PVAc) in the form of linear, three armed and four armed star shaped polymers were then successfully synthesized in reactions mediated by these xanthate RAFT/MADIX agents.
