RAFT polymerization in flow chemistry reactors—a fast screening approach

Uniqsis

Synthesizing well defined polymers (narrow molecular weight distribution) has traditionally been achieved by using anionic polymerization methodologies. However, this precise control is accompanied by very high sensitivity to impurities, temperature changes, and fast polymerization rates, which leads to high demands on the process control along with challenging laboratory work. More recently, radical polymerization methods such as the reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization technique have been the focus of polymer research as alternative methods to synthesize well-defined polymers from a variety of monomers.
