Abstract

The synthesis of linear homopolymers and diblock copolymers with low molecular weight and compositional polydispersity were studied by using living anionic polymerization. The synthesis of the polymers were performed in the polar solvent to minimize the strong association effects. It was found that the microgel nodules of tightly cross-linked polymers were formed upon the polymerization.
