The kinetics of reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT), R-group approach star polymerizations have been studied via a combined experimental and theoretical approach. From the improved understanding herein developed, design criteria have been suggested to aid in future syntheses of RAFT, R-group approach star polymer. The suggested criteria are as follows. To minimize the quantity of linear polymer in the system, it is important to have a high rate of monomer propagation but a...[Show more]
