Group Transfer Polymerization of Methacrylates

Great work by Dan in his new Macromolecules paper! The paper details our work in developing novel titanium-amino-phenolates complexes for the radical polymerisation of methyl methacrylate. The polymerization is possible without the need for a co-catalyst or activator and gives good control over molecular weight, as expected with a controlled radical polymerization. These systems however proceed via a unique bimetallic group transfer process, providing insight into titanium-mediated radical reactions and polymerizations.
