The Chemistry of Radical Polymerization, Third Edition is completely updated with the latest trends in mechanisms, processes, and applications in this rapidly evolving field. This comprehensive reference contains the crucial fundamental information necessary to understand the factors which control radical polymerization as well as critical evaluation of the latest developments and their impact on research and practice. Moreover, it provides the practical content to support the design of polymer syntheses and the efficient construction of polymer architectures. Covering vital processes chemistry researchers, practitioners, and advanced students need to know, The Chemistry of Radical Polymerization, Third Edition includes new content on the industrially important area of heterogeneous polymerization including emulsion, miniemulsion, microemulsion, and dispersion polymerization. This new edition has been thoroughly updated to explore recent progress in methods for "reversible-deactivation radical polymerization", otherwise known as living or controlled radical polymerization, and which includes processes such as SRMP, ATRP, and RAFT polymerization.
