Ligand-free single-electron transfer and degenerative chain transfer mediated living radical polymerization (SET-DTLRP) for methyl methacrylate (MMA) was realized by the initiation of an iodine-based initiator, 2-iodo-2-methylpropionitrile (CPI), in DMSO at ambient temperature. The polymerization produced acceptable controls over molecular weights with relatively narrow distributions (Mw/Mn ≤ 1.35). The polymers were obtained with high fidelity (∼ 96%) and active chain end groups. This work offered a more economical and eco-friendly SET-DTLRP technique.
