Chlorophyll a crude extract: efficient photo-degradable photocatalyst for PET-RAFT polymerization

Author affiliations

Abstract

We investigated the use of crude chlorophyll extracts to catalyze photoinduced electron/energy transfer-reversible addition–fragmentation chain transfer (PET-RAFT) polymerization under red light irradiation. We discovered that Chl a degrades under visible light in the presence of air, which can eliminate the need for catalyst removal after polymerization.
