RAFT Agents

Living Radical Polymerization,Chain Transfer Agents

RAFT polymerization is a technique that uses chain transfer agents (RAFT agents) to synthesize high-function polymers such as polymers with a narrow molecular weight distribution and block polymers. By combining the our company’s azo initiators and RAFT agents, precise polymerization reaction can be achieved only by adding them to an existing polymerization system. In our company, we offer RAFT agents that can be provided for mass production.

Characteristics of RAFT agents by FUJIFILM Wako Pure Chemical Corporation

  • 1. Production for safety and securityThere is no concern about lead time, supply capacity, quality variation, etc.
  • 2. Product form that is easy to handleProducts with properties such as low odor and powder are also available, and they can be sold in various packaging forms.
  • 3. Support for a wide range of quantitiesWe can provide in quantities from reagent scale to commercial scale.
  • 4. Advanced synthesis and mass production technologyWe have records of synthesizing more than 500 functional compounds per year.
