POLYMER DESIGN: Kinetic Simulations of Reversible Chain Transfer Catalyzed Polymerization (RTCP): Guidelines to Optimum Molecular Weight Control

Philipp Vana,* Atsushi Goto*

Compartmentalization and nitroxide partitioning in nitroxide-mediated radical polymerization in dispersed systems have been investigated by modeling and simulations. Compartmentalization comprises the segregation effect on termination and the confined space effect on deactivation. Under certain conditions, it is possible to obtain an improvement in both control and livingness.
