Reversible addition-fragmentation chain tran…

Reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) ( 2 ) polymerization is a form of reversible deactivation polymerization (and therefore chain growth polymerization) wherein the molecular weight of the resulting polymers is carefully controlled through the chain transfer polymerization step. RAFT polymerization is often regarded as one of the most versatile methods for creating polymers with specifically desired structures, such as brush, comb, or star like polymers, as well as dendrimers or cross linked polymers.
