MRC Special Issue: Acrylate Free Radical Polymerization: From Mechanism to Polymer Design
The current Special Issue of Macromolecular Rapid Communications is devoted to "Acrylate Free Radical Polymerization: From Mechanism to Polymer Design". The underpinning reaction mechanism of the free radical polymerization of acrylates is highly complex and only recently a coherent picture as well as reliable rate coefficients are starting to emerge. In addition, functional acrylates are important building blocks for complex macromolecular designs for a wide range of applications. Christopher Barner-Kowollik, guest-editor of this issue, compiled contributions to present the latest advances in the field.
