Precision polymer development by RAFT

We push the limits of RAFT polymerization to prepare polymers of ultra-high molecular weight and controlled microstructure. Our xanthate-based RAFT agents control the polymerization of both activated and non-activated monomers, while new heteroatom-based RAFT agents provide functionalities, such as tunable reactivity and the ability to act as an NMR probe.
