Abstract

We examine the reversible addition fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) process with regard to its potential and limits in future industrial applications (including those conducted on a larger scale) as well as materials science. The outlook for the RAFT process is bright: Its unrivaled inherent process simplicity coupled with a wide tolerance to monomer classes and functionalities makes it a prime candidate for the use in large reactors. At the same time, it allows for ready access to complex macromolecular architectures of variable shape and size. © 2008 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

199 citations in Scopus
Search Google Scholar™
193 citations in Web of Science®

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.

References: Given the format and scope of the current preview, we limit the number of references to a few key papers to highlight certain aspects. For full referencing on the RAFT process the reader is referred to the reviews and books of Moad, Rizzardo, Thang, Barner-Kowollik, Perrier, Charreyre and others.
