[en] In the atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) of methyl methacrylate in the presence of [RuCl2(p-cymene)(PCy3)] (p-cymene=4-isopropyltoluene, PCy3=tricyclohexylphosphine), a microwave effect is noted which strikingly depends on both the temperature and the method used (conventional microwave synthesis (CMS, i.e., without simultaneous cooling) or enhanced microwave synthesis (EMS, with simultaneous cooling)). Thus, between 85 and 120 degrees C under CMS conditions, microwave-assisted polymerizations take place in a controlled fashion, and at 120 degrees C the microwave-assisted polymerization is three times faster than the conventionally heated protocol. However, from 130 degrees C, microwave irradiation has a deleterious effect and the polymerizations are no longer controlled. Likewise, using the EMS method in the temperature range of 85-120 degrees C results in uncontrolled processes, as indicated by the unsuccessful resumption of the polymerizations. These failures might be attributed to a significantly high concentration of radical species, which results in enhanced propagation and termination - mostly disproportionation - rates.
