Evaluation of Ring Expansion-Controlled Radical Polymerization System by AFM Observation.

Narumi, A., et al. ACS Macro Letters 2019, 8 (6), 634-638, DOI:

We here present a direct link between the reaction mechanisms for the ring-expansion “vinyl” polymerization system and atomic force microscopy (AFM) observations. The relationship between the molecular chain lengths and the cyclic versus linear morphologies is highlighted. Reproduced with permission. Copyright 2019©, American Chemical Society.
