      Cover: Living anionic polymerization of tert-butyl acrylate in the presence of LiCl using a flow microreactor system can be conducted at −20 °C. The subsequent reaction of a reactive polymer chain end with an alkyl methacrylate in an integrated flow microreactor system leads to the formation of a block copolymer. Further details can be found in the article by A. Nagaki, Y. Takahashi, K. Akahori, and J. Yoshida* on page 467.

    1. Modeling of Polymer Network Formation from Preformed Precursors (pages 426–445)

      Precursors of crosslinked polymeric materials are pre-prepared from small molecules and are characteristic of distributions of composition, molecular weights, number, type, and reactivity of functional groups. These distributions depend on the history of precursor formation and affect the structure and properties of the final network.

    1. Synthesis and Characterization of Stereo Multiblock Poly(lactic acid)s with Different Block Lengths by Melt Polycondensation of Poly(L-lactic acid)/Poly(D-lactic acid) Blends (pages 446–457)

      Stereo multiblock poly(lactic acid)s (PLAs) with different block lengths are successfully synthesized by simple melt polycondensation of poly(L-lactic acid)/poly(D-lactic acid) blends with different molecular weights. The method is versatile and allows for an easy control of block lengths and physical properties of the synthesized stereo multiblock PLAs.

    2. Integrated Continuous Processing and Flow Characterization of RAFT Polymerization in Tubular Flow Reactors (pages 458–466)

      Christian H. Hornung, Xuan Nguyen, Geoff Dumsday and Simon Saubern

      Version of Record online: 10 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/mren.201200029

      An integrated continuous flow process for the production of RAFT polymers is described. Both, degassing of the monomer solution prior to polymerization and precipitation of the product afterwards are performed in a continuous set-up, in line with the reaction. The process is scaled up to a total output of 1.36 kg of poly(acrylamide) per day.

    3. Living Anionic Polymerization of tert-Butyl Acrylate in a Flow Microreactor System and Its Applications to the Synthesis of Block Copolymers (pages 467–472)

      Aiichiro Nagaki, Yusuke Takahashi, Kana Akahori and Jun-ichi Yoshida

      Version of Record online: 30 OCT 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/mren.201200051

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Living anionic polymerization of tert-butyl acrylate using a flow microreactor system is described. The reactions can be conducted under mild conditions such as at −20 °C. The subsequent reaction of a reactive polymer chain end with an alkyl methacrylate in an integrated flow micoreactor system leads to the formation of a block copolymer.
