Recent advances in photoinduced polymerization reactions under 400–700 nm light

The very recent developments of novel photoinitiators and photoinitiating systems in photoinduced radical and cationic polymerization reactions are reviewed. The use of mild irradiation conditions in the blue-to-red wavelength range (household halogen lamps, LEDs, fluorescent bulbs, sunlight; reactions under air) is particularly outlined. New opportunities in applications requiring such experimental conditions in sunlight curing, photoredox initiated polymerizations or in situ incorporation of nanoparticles in a photopolymerizable matrix are described.
