Abstract : The present work describes a combination of microwave irradiation as a heating source and water as a solvent for carrying out a living-controlled polymerization of acrylamide. Reasonable results were obtained for a nitroxide-mediated radical polymerization NMP with a combination of a conventional hydrosoluble radical initiator and a phosphonylated nitroxide SG1. The microwave enhancement of the polymerization was found to depend on the mode of irradiation, i.e., either a DYN mode or an SPS mode. The former mode corresponded to a dynamic control of the temperature by way of a high initial microwave power, and in this case, no specific microwave effect was observed. On the other hand, in the SPS mode, which is a pulsed power mode, the result showed a strong acceleration of the polymerization process > 50 times without the loss of the living-controlled polymerization characteristics which is relevant with a re-initiation of the polyacrylamide macroinitiator even after 100% of conversion.
