Terminology for Radical Polymerizations with Minimal Termination—The So-Called “Living” and/or “Controlled” Radical Polymerization
This document defines terms related to modern methods of radical polymerization, in which certain additives react reversibly with the radicals, thus enabling the reactions to take on much of the character of living polymerisations. In recent technical literature, these reactions have often been referred to as, inter alia, “controlled” or “controlled/living” polymerizations. The phenomenon is defined, a name for it is recommended, and definitions are provided for the relevant basic terms.
