"Written by a highly prestigious and knowledgeable team of top scientists in the field, this book provides an overview of the current status of controlled/living polymerisation, combining the synthetic, mechanistic and application–oriented aspects." (ET Polymers, 1 March 2011)
"In summary, this book is an excellent resource for chemical professionals interested in controlled/living polymerization, and the clear, concise presentation of the mechanisms for such polymerizations accompanied by the comprehensive literature references renders this book useful to both novices and experts." ( JACS, 2010) All in all, Mu¨ller and Matyjaszewski have done a marvelous job. Their book deserves the label must–have for graduate students and academic or industrial scientists, who are either working or interested in the area of modern polymer synthesis (
