Reversible Addition Fragmentation Chain Transfer (RAFT) technology is one of the most important new developments in polymer chemistry. The most significant benefit of RAFT polymerization is that it allows the preparation of new polymeric architectures with defined properties.

Spanning the entire field from fundamentals to applications in material science, this one–stop source is the first comprehensive reference on this hot topic for polymer, physical and surface chemists, materials scientists, chemical engineers, and those chemists working in industry.

Edited by a rising star within the community, this Handbook assembles the latest knowledge about RAFT, ranging from its mechanistic underpinnings to practical applications, providing high value for researchers and research managers seeking up–to–date information about the RAFT process, its scope and limitations.
