Enhanced control: Electrochemically mediated atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) allows easy modulation of the overall rate and control of polymerization through the variation of an external applied potential, Eapp (see picture). This method has been successfully applied to aqueous ATRP of oligo(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate (OEOMA475) catalyzed by Cu/tris(2-pyridylmethyl)amine.
