Abstract

Disclosed is Stable Free Radical Polymerization (SFRP) a process modification whereby the critical nitroxide species used is made in situ by the oxidation of a tertiary amhe or the thermolysis of an N-oxide. The main advantages of in situ generation is a saving on the high cost of the nitroxide species.
