The facile and efficient one-pot synthesis of monodisperse, highly crosslinked, and “living” functional copolymer microspheres by the ambient temperature iniferter-induced “living” radical precipitation polymerization (ILRPP) is described for the first time. Uniform poly(4-VP-co-EGDMA) microspheres (Dn = 0.28–1.44 μm) were readily obtained under different polymerization conditions. The general applicability of the ambient temperature ILRPP and the “livingness” of the resulting polymer microspheres were confirmed. Moreover, a “grafting from” particle growth mechanism was proposed for ILRPP.
