Abstract

A novel nitroxyl radical containing a diethyl phosphonate group in the β-position to the nitrogen atom has been used as radical scavenger in free radical polymerization. In the presence of this stable free-radical, styrene and n-butyl acrylate undergo controlled / «living» polymerization. The samples of polystyrene (PS) and poly (n-butyl acrylate) (PBuA) obtained in this way exhibit a narrow Poisson-type distribution of molar masses.
