Copper-mediated controlled radical polymerization under biological conditions: SET-LRP in blood serum

Author affiliations

Abstract

The polymerization of hydrophilic monomers is reported utilizing Cu(0)-mediated living radical polymerization, SET-LRP. Highly active Cu(0) is formed in situ as a result of rapid disproportionation of [Cu(I)(Me6-Tren)Br] in serum. Disproportionation and homogenous controlled radical polymerization (PDI 1.09–1.25) are performed for the first time in blood (sheep) serum.
