The multidisciplinary project aims at using metal complexes in order to combine the high efficiency of coordination-insertion polymerization (CIP) of olefins (in particular ethylene) with the high efficiency of Organometallic Mediated Radical Polymerization (OMRP) of vinyl polar monomers (such as (meth)acrylates or vinyl esters) to produce well-defined olefin/polar vinyl monomer block and statistical copolymers. The project will include the evaluation of organometallics based hybrid catalytic/radical polymerization systems for the copolymerization of ethylene and polar vinyl comonomers and the advanced characterizations of so obtained copolymer properties (microstructure from NMR, MWD from SEC, thermal properties from DSC…).
