A review. The state-of-the-art of controlled radical polymn. (CRP) in 2011 is presented. Atom transfer radical polymn., stable radical mediated polymn., and degenerate transfer processes, including reversible addn. fragmentation chain transfer are the most often used CRP procedures. CRP opens new avenues to novel materials from a large range of monomers. Detailed structure-reactivity relationships and mechanistic understanding not only helps attain a better controlled polymn. but enables prepn. of polymers with complex architectures. Correlation of macromol. structure with final properties of prepd. materials is a prerequisite for creation of new applications and commercialization of various CRP products. [on SciFinder(R)]
