Organometallic Mediated Radical Polymerization of Vinylidene Fluoride

Christophe Detrembleur, Rinaldo Poli, Vincent Ladmiral, Sanjib Banerjee, Bruno Michel Ameduri, Antoine Debuigne
An unprecedented level of control for the radical polymerization of vinylidene fluoride (VDF), yielding well-defined PVDF (at least up to 14,500 g/mol) with low dispersity (≤1.32), was achieved using organometallic mediated radical polymerization (OMRP) with an organocobalt compound as initiator. The high chain-end fidelity was demonstrated by the synthesis of PVDF- and PVAc-containing di-and tri-block copolymers. DFT calculations rationalize the equally efficient reactivation of the dormant species with both head and tail chain ends.
