This review highlights the progress made in reversible addition fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) and macromolecular design via the interchange of xanthates (MADIX)polymerization since their first report in 1998. It addresses the mechanism and kinetics of the process, examines the various components of the system and the polymerization conditions, and gives an account of the wide range of monomers that have been polymerized and the various polymericarchitectures that have been produced. The review shows that the process is now opening to a wider scientific community, as a synthetic tool for the production of functional macromolecules and materials.
