OUP USA, Sep 27, 2012 - Science - 344 pages
This book is the second volume in a two-volume compilation on controlled/living radical polymerization. It combines all important aspects of controlled radical polymerization: from synthetic procedures, to rational selection of reaction components, to understanding of the reaction mechanisms, to materials and applications. This book is focused on recent progress in the rapidly developing field of controlled/living radical polymerization. It is a sequel to ACS Symposium Series 685, 768, 854, 944, 1023, and 1024. Volume 1100 deals with the mechanistic aspects of controlled radical polymerization and describes the recent advances in the most important techniques, whereas Volume 1101 contains chapters on new materials prepared by controlled radical polymerization as well as applications of these materials.
