Abstract

Recent developments in the field of living polymerization are surveyed. Comparison of the available mechanistic and kinetic information is made for living anionic, cationic, free radical, group transfer, ring‐opening metathesis, Ziegler‐Natta and immortal polymerizations. This evaluation indicates that the majority of living polymerizations involve quasiliving equilibrium between active (propagating) and dormant (nonpropagating) polymer chains. On the basis of the kinetics of a general model for quasiliving and ideal living polymerizations it is concluded that ideal living polymerization is a special subclass of quasiliving polymerizations. Classification of living polymerization systems is also attempted.
