Abstract: Living radical polymerization (LRP) techniques and their ability to improve the morphology of crosslinked polymer networks by controlling polymer chain growth are reviewed. Recent successes in the creation of improved molecularly imprinted polymer networks are also discussed. LRP offers the ability to control molecular weight, polydispersity, and tacticity while reducing microgel formation in polymers created via free-radical polymerization (FRP). The improved network architecture of polymers created via LRP has great potential, especially when considering imprinted networks which have traditionally been plagued by heterogeneity in network morphology and binding affinities. Using LRP can considerably improve template recognition and further delay template transport in imprinted polymers
