Photoinduced Organocatalyzed Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization Using Continuous Flow

Abstract: Organocatalyzed atom transfer radical polymerization (O-ATRP) has emerged as a metal-free variant of historically transition-metal reliant atom transfer radical polymerization. Strongly reducing organic photoredox catalysts have proven capable of mediating O-ATRP. To date, operation of photoinduced O-ATRP has been demonstrated in batch reactions. However, continuous flow approaches can provide efficient irradiation reaction conditions and…
