Summary Nitroxide-mediated polymerization is an important branch of controlled radical polymerization, which has revolutionised the preparation of polymer architectures and compositions. This is the first book dedicated to the topic and covers the history and development of nitroxide-mediated polymerization, as well as current techniques of academic and industrial interest. Nitroxide-Mediated Polymerization gathers together and comprehensively discusses all aspects of nitroxide-mediated polymerization, from fundamental principles through to industrial applications. A specific focus will be dedicated to the principle of the technique, its kinetics aspects, the synthesis of the controlling agents, the range of polymerizable monomers, its potential for preparation of advanced organic and hybrid materials and its status at the industrial stage. The book details all stages of the field, with chapters detailing the history, recent developments and novel materials in this fast developing area. Edited and written by expert researchers working in the field and academia this book focuses on highlighting the kinetic aspects of nitroxide-mediated polymerization, providing insight into the kinetics that can sometimes be hard to follow in published papers. The book will be of interest to polymer chemists and materials scientists at graduate level and above
