HIGHLIGHT: New Methods for Anionic Polymerizations at Elevated Temperatures: ''Retarded Anionic Polymerizations''

N. B. Bowden

Critical new advances in living anionic polymerizations, in particular retarded anionic polymerizations (RAP), which uses new reagents to initiate and control the polymerization, are highlighted here. The emergent area of RAP allows anionic polymerizations to be carried out under conditions that are more amenable to industrial synthesis (i.e., at elevated temperatures) and to synthesize new polymer architectures.
