Inorganic sulfites as reducing agents were successfully used in combination with typical reversible addition− fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) agents for the controlled DET-RAFT (DET: dissociative electron transfer) of methacrylates, methyl acrylate (MA), and styrene (Sty) near room temperature (30 °C). The polymerizations were first-order with respect to monomer conversion and polymers with narrow molecular weight distributions (Đ < 1.2), and “living” features were obtained.
