This study deals with control of the molecular weight of polyvinyl acetate (PVAc) emulsion by iodine-transfer radical polymerization and RAFT polymerization. Emulsion polymerization using ethyl iodoacetate more closely approximates the theoretical molecular weights than does the free radical polymerization. On the other hand, RAFT polymerizations reveal that the dithiocarbamate controls the polymer molecular weight more than xanthate under the same condition. Seed-emulsion polymerization is also performed using the chiral polyester seed to fabricate emulsions with core-shell structures.
