Studies on the hard confinement effect on the RAFT polymerization of a monomeric ionic liquid. Unexpected triggering of RAFT polymerization at 30 °C

Author affiliations

Abstract

For the first time, the RAFT polymerization of a monomeric ionic liquid under hard confinement was successfully carried out. Consequently, macromolecules with well-defined chemical structures and narrow molecular weight distributions were obtained. Additionally, we reported the unique possibility of triggering RAFT polymerization at 30 °C. This novel strategy open alternative routes to the easy and simple manufacturing of polymers with defined geometries and highly specific properties according to our desired purpose, i.e., in industrial application as biosensors and electronic and electrical nanodevices.
