Cover: Polymers may contain several active, dead, and dormant radical centers at the same time, which results in a multidimensional modeling problem. A model of the network formation kinetics during the nitroxide-mediated radical copolymerization of vinyl/divinyl monomers is presented in this work using a multifunctional macromolecule approach. The predictions of this model are then compared with experimental data. Further details can be found in the article by J. C. Hernández-Ortiz, E. Vivaldo-Lima,* and A. Penlidis on page 302.
