Yifeng Du,* Yuhui Du,* Stefano Lazzari, Tom Reimers,* Rupert Konradi, Thomas W. Holcombe and E. Bryan Coughlin* published their research in the journal Polymer Chemistry.  This paper is entitled, "Mechanistic investigation of cyclic ketene acetal radical ring-opening homo- and co-polymerization and preparation of PEO graft copolymers with tunable composition". Radical ring-opening polymerization of cyclic ketene acetals (CKA) leads to homogeneous ester insertion during semi-batch reaction with N vinyl pyrrolidone (NVP). Investigation of CKA radical transfer allowed for CKA-NVP grafting copolymer.
