    ABSTRACT: Polymer-encapsulated gold or silver nanoparticles were synthesized and sterically stabilized by a shell layer of poly(4-vinylpyridine) (P4VP) grafted on SiO(2) nanoparticles that acts as a scaffold for the synthesis of hybrid noble metal nanomaterials. The grafting P4VP shell was synthesized via surface reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization of 4-vinylpyridine (4VP) using SiO(2)-supported benzyl 9H-carbazole-9-carbodithioate (SiO(2)-BCBD) as the RAFT agent. The covalently tethered P4VP shell can coordinate with various transition metal ions such as Au(3+) or Ag(+) and therefore stabilize the corresponding Au or Ag nanoparticles reduced in situ by sodium borohydride (NaBH(4)) or trisodium citrate. The SiO(2)-supported RAFT agent and the Au or Ag nanoparticles embedded in the P4VP shell layer were characterized by UV-vis spectrophotometer, X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), and surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS).

    ABSTRACT: A novel synthetic route, combining three reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) and one atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) processes, for the preparation of a miktoarm dumbbell-like amphiphilic triblock copolymer, poly(poly(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate)-b-polystyrene-b-(poly(4-vinylbenzyl chloride)-g-polystyrene) (PPEGMA-b-PS-b-(PVBC-g-PS)), was developed using 2-cyanoprop-2-yl 1-dithionaphthalate (CPDN) as a RAFT agent, and the benzyl chloride group of the VBC units in the PVBC block as active ATRP macroinitiators, respectively. The structures of the obtained (co)polymers were characterized by 1H NMR spectroscopy. The obtained PPEGMA-b-PS-b-(PVBC-g-PS) amphiphilic triblock graft copolymer could self-assemble into spherical micelles with 100-300 nm diameters in a selective solvent.

    ABSTRACT: The recently developed living free-radical polymerization system, atom transfer radical polymerization using activators generated by electron transfer for atom transfer radical polymerization (AGET ATRP), was used for methyl methacrylate (MMA) polymerization in the presence of a limited amount of air, using a novel catalyst system based on iron (FeCl3) complexes with iminodiacetic acid (IDA) and using ascorbic acid (VC) as a reducing agent. The kinetics of AGET ATRPs of MMA with different amounts of VC in the presence of air was investigated. The results of the polymerizations demonstrated the features of “living”/controlled free-radical polymerization such as the number-average molecular weights increasing linearly with monomer conversion and narrow molecular weight distributions (Mw/Mn=1.31–1.44).
