- atom transfer radical polymerization;
Naturally occurring hemin, an iron-containing porphyrin, and its synthetic derivatives were used as atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP; see picture) catalysts. The effects of the halide salt concentration, attachment of poly(ethylene glycol) moieties, and hydrogenation of the hemin vinyl groups on the catalyst performance were studied.
