The Preparation of PVAc with Lower PDI through RATRP in Miniemulsion Polymerization
In this paper, reverse atom transfer radical polymerization (RATRP) was used to prepare polyvinyl acetate (PVAc) with lower polydispersity index (PDI). The different ligands such as bpy and PMDETA were studied separately to control the polymerization of VAc. The results show that RATRP is not controlled with bpy as ligand, but it is possible to obtain PVAc with low PDI when PMDETA was used as ligand.
