Abstract : A water-soluble macroalkoxyamine (SG1 nitroxide-capped poly(acrylic acid)) was successfully used in controlled radical polymerization in aqueous dispersed media. In emulsion, poly(n-butyl acrylate), polystyrene or corresponding copolymer latexes were obtained for the first time in a batch ab initio process. The recipe does not need any classical surfactant. Diblock copolymer particles consisting of a hydrophobic core and a polyelectrolyte shell are synthesized within concentrated suspensions reaching 40 wt.% solids. Molar masses and polydispersity indexes reveal a controlled polymerization mechanism in spite of a low initiator efficiency. Different parameters were proven to influence molar masses and particle diameter. Particle formation is discussed as well as kinetics of polymerization in particles. In dispersion, poly(N,N-diethylacrylamide) particles that can reversibly dissociate under temperature changes were synthesized to 40 wt.% solids with similar macromolecular and colloidal characteristics as that of particles obtained in emulsion. Introducing a crosslinker in a batch or semi-batch process, thermally-sensitive nanogels can be produced. This result is a major advance in this field as concentrated suspensions of small nanogels have been obtained without surfactant for the first time.
