The reversible addition fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization is one to be included in undergraduate polymer laboratories because there exists one commercially available xanthate, ethylxanthogenacetic acid (EXGA), a subclass of RAFT agent that is suitable for usage in undergraduate laboratories. The RAFT process can impart living characteristics to a free radical polymerization while RAFT agent can achieve living free radical polymerization for a certain monomer.

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.
