Copper bromide complexed by fluorinated macroligands: towards microspheres by ATRP of vinyl monomers in scCO2

Abstract

We report the successful synthesis of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) by atom transfer radical polymerization using a catalyst ligated to a polymeric ligand having a dual role, i.e., the complexation of the copper salt and the stabilization of the growing PMMA particles; at the end of the polymerization, the catalyst is removed by supercritical fluid extraction leading to PMMA microspheres with low residual catalyst content.
