Nanostructuring of polymers by controlling of ionizing radiation-induced free radical polymerization, copolymerization, grafting and crosslinking by RAFT mechanism

In this paper we review the state-of-the-art of radiation-induced reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer -mediated polymerization for the synthesis of homo-, block-, graft and crosslinked polymers by showing the potential of this technique for some nanotechnology applications

Scholarcy highlights

  • Application oriented examples are given on polymers nanostructured by reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer mechanism
  • Free radical polymerization technique is the most prevalent form of polymerization from academic and commercial perspectives which is broadly applicable to a wide range of monomers
  • Despite its numerous advantages free radical polymerization has the lack of control neither in the molecular weight and its distribution nor on the architecture of polymers
  • In this paper we review the state-of-the-art of radiation-induced RAFT-mediated polymerization for the synthesis of homo, block, graft and crosslinked polymers by showing the potential of this technique for some nanotechnology applications
