RAFT Agents

Reversible Addition / Fragmentation Chain Transfer

Aldrich Materials Science′s Polymer R&D center prepares RAFT agents to enable synthesis of well-defined polymers and block copolymers for a variety of applications. To help determine the right RAFT agent for your controlled radical polymerization needs, please see our RAFT Agent to Monomer compatibility table and/or our Controlled Radical Polymerization guide.

″Aldrich® Materials Science′s catalogue of diverse RAFT agents enables scientists to rationally design and synthesize novel polymeric materials.″ - Dr Graeme Moad, Research Team Leader at Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO)
