Controlled/"living" radical polymerization (CLRP) of vinyl chloride (VC) via the reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) process is reported for the first time. The cyanomethyl methyl(phenyl) carbamodithioate (CMPCD) was found to be an efficient RAFT agent enabling the CLRP polymerization of VC monomer under certain experimental conditions. Two different radical initiators, having very distinct half-life times at room temperature, were employed in this study. The kinetic studies...[Show more]
