Abstract This chapter discusses cobalt-catalyzed catalytic chain transfer polymerization (CCTP). The use of Co(II) macrocycles as catalytic chain transfer (CCT) agents in free radical polymerization is a convenient method for the synthesis of low-molecular-weight polymers with vinyl end-functionality. To introduce the reader to the subject, the history and patent literature are described followed by in-depth sections on the catalytic mechanism, catalysts employed, monomers, reaction conditions, and CCT applications. An up-to-date review is provided covering all sections.
