First report of reversible addition–fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerisation in room temperature ionic liquids

Abstract

The Reversible Addition–Fragmentation chain Transfer (RAFT) polymerisation of acrylates, methacrylates and styrene is reported for the first time in room temperature ionic liquids; the acrylate and methacrylate polymerisations show a living character and lead to well-characterised polymers, with narrow polydispersity (<1.3); in the case of styrene, the insolubility of the polymer in the ionic liquids stops the polymerisation at an early stage.
