Initiator-fragment incorporation radical polymerization (IFIRP) of commercially available fluorinated monomers was performed in the presence of cross-linking agents, resulting in a hyperbranched polymer with perfluoroalkyl groups (F-HBP). In our one-step method, a F-HBP was successfully prepared without gelation within 1 h. The FHBP exhibited interesting properties based on both the hyperbranched architecture and the perfluoroalkyl groups, such as good solubility in common organic solvents, high thermal stability, and low surface free energy.
