Abstract

Atom-transfer radical polymerization has been used for polymerizing water-soluble monomers from solid polymeric particles, intended as a model for any polymeric functional surface. Depending on the polarity of substrate and solvent, homogeneous initiation throughout the particles or pure surface initiation could be obtained. In the last case, polymer layers were obtained with thickness up to several tens of microns, still active for block copolymerization.
