Abstract

Poly(vinyl acetate) stars were prepared using MADIX/RAFT polymerisation mediated by xanthates. The polymerisation shows living characteristics with molecular weight increasing with conversion. The subsequent hydrolysis of these three and four arm stars led to the formation of poly(vinyl alcohol) stars.
