Abstract

Some examples of polymerization reactions with a variety of mechanisms which have been carried out under sonication are described. It is shown that they can be classified in general terms using the same reaction types proposed by Luche for low molar mass systems. The use of ultrasound allows a large degree of control over the polymer structure and hence the resulting properties, particularly in controlling the molecular weight distributions.
