Reversible addition fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) mediated polymerization of N-vinylpyrrolidone
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2008-03)
Xanthate-mediated polymerization was investigated as a tool for the preparation of well-defined poly(N-vinylpyrrolidone) and copolymers of N-vinylpyrrolidone. Some results regarding the monomer vinyl acetate are included, ...
Mechanistic studies of reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer mediated polymerization
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2004-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: To comply with the ever growing demands for materials with better properties and complex architectures, polymer chemistry has resorted to the use of living free radical polymerization techniques. Despite ...
