Paperback. In recent years, the study of radical polymerization has gone through something of a renaissance. This has seen significant changes in our understanding of the area and has led to major advances in our ability to control and predict the outcome of polymerization processes. Two major factors may be judged responsible for bringing this about and for spurring an intensified interest in all aspects of radical chemistry.Firstly, the realization that classical theories on radical reactivity and polymerization mechanism do not adequately explain the rate and specificity of simple radical reactions. Secondly, the development of new techniques which allow a more thorough characterization of both polymer microstructures and the kinetics and mechanism of polymerizations.This book critically evaluates the findings of the last few years. The overall aim is to provide a framework for greater understanding of free radical polymerization and create a d
