4 31.1 Chain-Growth Polymers Produced by chain-reaction polymerization Initiator (radical, acid or anion) adds to a carbon– carbon double bond of an unsaturated substrate (a vinyl monomer ) to yield a reactive intermediate that reacts with a second molecule of monomer and so on

5 Anionic Polymerization Vinyl monomers with electron-withdrawing substituents (EWG) can be polymerized by anionic catalysts Chain-carrying step is nucleophilic addition of an anion to the unsaturated monomer by a Michael reaction
