Simon Harrisson from the P3R team was involved in the research work recently published as:

RAFT copolymerization of styrene and 4-(diphenylphosphino)styrene is explored to establish the statistical distribution of the phosphine-functional monomer within the copolymer. RAFT copolymerization provides phosphine-functional copolymers of low dispersity. Estimation of reactivity ratios indicates DPPS has a strong tendency to homopolymerize while St preferentially copolymerizes with DPPS. Block copolymers as well as polymeric phosphine oxides and phosphonium salts are also prepared.
