Precision Radical Polymerization with Transition-Metal Catalysis: A Bridge between Polymer Chemistry and Catalysis Science
Prof. Mitsuo Sawamoto

Prof. Sawamoto is an inventor of the transition metal-catalyzed precision (living) radical polymerization technique which is industrially available for the development of well-defined polymer syntheses due to an inherent simple and easy methodology.

In the lecture, recent progress in catalyst development and mechanistic understanding were given in addition to the precision synthesis of functionalized and/or sequence-controlled polymers and macromolecules via radical/metal catalysis.
