Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Polymer
  • Organic chemistry
  • Catalysis

Krzysztof Matyjaszewski mostly deals with Polymer chemistry, Atom-transfer radical-polymerization, Radical polymerization, Polymerization and Living free-radical polymerization. The Polymer chemistry study combines topics in areas such as Copolymer, Methacrylate, Polymer, Monomer and Bulk polymerization. His work deals with themes such as Acrylate, End-group, Catalysis, Methyl methacrylate and Styrene, which intersect with Atom-transfer radical-polymerization.

While the research belongs to areas of Radical polymerization, Krzysztof Matyjaszewski spends his time largely on the problem of Photochemistry, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Reversible-deactivation radical polymerization, Radical and Alkyl. His Polymerization research integrates issues from Cationic polymerization and Polyacrylonitrile. His Living free-radical polymerization research includes themes of Chain-growth polymerization, Living polymerization and Nitroxide mediated radical polymerization.

His most cited work include:

  • Atom transfer radical polymerization. (5931 citations)
