Effect of substituents on radical stability in reversible addition fragmentation chain transfer polymerization: an ab initio study
The substituents effects on radical stability in the reversible addition fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization process was investigated using high level ad initio molecular orbital calculations. The RAFT-adduct radicals were stabilized by electron donation from the two sulfur substituents. It was observed that the lone pair donor Z-substituents had smaller effect on radical stability. The results show that the substituent effects on the RAFT agents were qualitatively different and...[Show more]
