The conventional polymerization and nitroxide-mediated polymerization (NMP) {for which the nitroxide is N-tert-butyl-N-[1-diethylphosphono-(2,2-dimethylpropyl)]nitroxide} of N-isopropylacrylamide and N-tert-butylacrylamide are described. The reactivity ratios are the same at different temperatures and in different solvents with the conventional and NMP systems. Control in NMP has been observed with 2,2′-azobisisobutyronitrile/N-tert-butyl-N-[1-diethylphosphono-(2,2-dimethylpropyl)]nitroxide and a polystyrene macroinitiator, with the living character of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide-stat-N-tert-butylacrylamide) confirmed by chain extension with styrene.
