Macro-RAFT agent with different molecular weight

What is it about?

Synthesis of different molecular weight poly (styrene sulfonate) based macro-RAFT agents and their use as shell material in surfactant-free emulsion polymerization of styrene. Concentration and molecular weight of hydrophilic macro-RAFT agent has an influence on colloidal stability, particle size distribution and self-assembly.

Why is it important?

Method provides the opportunity to functionalize the particle surface and control particle morphology
