For use in polymerization of acrylic acid and acrylates, see: Alb et al. (2008 ▶, 2009 ▶); Konkolewicz et al. (2009 ▶). Various vinyl monomers can be polymerized via the RAFT (addition-fragmentation chain-transfer) mechanism by varying the substitutes of the trithiocarbonates, see: Moad et al. (2005 ▶, 2008 ▶).
