    Abstract: The long chain vinyl end-functional polystyrene has been synthesized in bulk polymerization method using atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) with Undecenyl-2-Bromopropionate (UnBP) and CuCl/bypyridine catalytic system. The polymerizations demonstrate an increase in molecular weight and conversion in direct proportion to the polymerization t... Show More
