The presence of hexafluorobenzene or octafluorotoluene lead to π–π stacking interactions that decreased the rate of the atom transfer radical polymerization of styrene in nonaromatic solvents. By interacting with the aromatic group at the dormant chain end, π–π stacking agents reduced the stability of the active polymer radical and shifted the equilibrium further toward the dormant species.
