          Abstract

          The commercial applications of polymers produced by reversible-deactivation radical polymerization are reviewed here.

          Abstract

          Reversible-deactivation radical polymerisation (RDRP) techniques are essential in modern polymer chemistry. Over the years, they have become not only fantastic lab tools for the easy preparation of structurally complex polymers but also an industrial reality. This article reviews industrial developments and commercial success based on RDRP processes. The nature of RDRP control agents is discussed and numerous industrial polymers and their applications are exemplified. While RDRP is firmly established as a powerful means for the development of next generation high-valued polymer products, there is room for improvement in terms of the cost/performance ratio for a broader adoption by industry. Some directions are proposed for the future.
