Abstract

The contribution of entropic factors to the penultimate unit effect in free-radical copolymerizations is discussed and exemplified. In addition, significant penultimate unit effects on radical selectivity in transfer reactions are demonstrated and are shown to have a significant polar component. Further, ring-opening copolymerization studies are presented and describe surprising results that seem to originate from strong solvent effects in copolymerization. These results could not have been predicted with current knowledge, prior to the experiment. The present contribution demonstrates in detail that radical reactions are highly complex and there are significant dangers and drawbacks in employing simplified kinetic models when in search of fundamental understanding.

11 citations in Scopus
10 citations in Web of Science®
Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
