Organocatalyzed Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization: Perspectives

Abstract: The recent development of organocatalyzed atom transfer radical polymerization (O‐ATRP) represents a significant advancement in the field of controlled radical polymerizations. A number of classes of photoredox catalysts have been employed thus far in O‐ATRP. Analysis of the proposed mechanism gives insight into the relevant photophysical and chemical properties that determine catalyst performance. Discussion…
