Photomediated RAFT step-growth polymerization with maleimide monomers
Photomediated RAFT step-growth polymerization was performed with and without the presence of a photocatalyst using a trithiocarbonate-based CTA and a maleimide monomer. Under catalyst-free conditions, the polymerization proceeded with an appreciable rate under irradiation with blue and green light, which was extended to red light in the presence of ZnTPP.
