Is it ATRP or SET-LRP? part I: Cu0&CuII/PMDETA – mediated reversible – deactivation radical polymerization

Author affiliations

Abstract

There is a controversial matter of debate as to the mechanism of the Cu0 catalyzed radical polymerization. Two models exist, one based upon ATRP whilst the other upon SET-LRP. Here we present new experimental results and insights into the nature of this polymerization. A good controlled/living polymerization was eventually obtained by Cu0&CuII/PMDETA-mediated radical polymerization. A comparative analysis shows that the mechanism behind this reaction lies between the competition and equilibrium results of SET-LRP and ATRP.
