Kinetic consequences of cationic grafting (or blocking) onto and from have been derived by assuming the operational presence of these two mechanisms. It has been found that high grafting (or blocking) efficiencies(f) cannot be achieved by the onto process with polymerization systems in which termination leading to homopolymer occurs. Also, f decreases with increasing monomer conversion and rapidly so near 100% conversion in grafting or blocking onto. Consequently, efficient carbocationic grafting or blocking is readily explained by grafting or blocking from rather than by grafting or blocking onto.
