Abstract

The current state of the art of polymer synthesis in (microstructured) continuous-flow reactors is given, focusing on controlled/living polymerization methods that allow for precision polymer design. Emerging trends and the most notable developments are discussed. Especially, the field of multistep reactions and online monitoring are highlighted, which in combination may give access to fully automated high-throughput polymer synthesis reactors in the future.
