Photoinduced Cu(II)-mediated reversible deactivation radical polymerization (RDRP) was employed to synthesize poly(vinylidene fluoride-co-chlorotrifluoroethylene)-graft-polyacrylonitrile (P(VDF-co-CTFE)-g-PAN). The concentration of copper catalyst (CuCl2) loading was as low as 1/64 equivalent to chlorine atom in the presence of Me6-Tren under UV irradiation. The light-responsive nature of graft polymerization was confirmed by “off-on” impulsive irradiation experiments. Temporal control of the polymerization process and varied graft contents were achieved via this photoinduced Cu(II)-mediated RDRP. View Full-Text
