The stepwise insertion reaction of styrene (St) and p-tert-butoxystyrene (BOSt) into poly(alkoxyamine) macroinitiator was carried out to provide well-defined poly(St)-b-poly(BOSt) multiblock copolymers. Structural confirmation of the multiblock copolymers was accomplished by NMR and IR measurements. The model reaction also supported that the monomer insertion into the macroinitiator proceeded in accordance with a living fashion.
