Since the development of the living / controlled radical polymerization method ATRP (= atom transfer radical polymerization) in 1995  new catalysts for this reaction have been intensively investigated. This method conquered rapidly numerous fields in chemistry ranging from organic and polymer synthesis to materials science and nanotechnology.
