[en] The emerging technologies (e.g. in optics, microelectronics, medicine...) require the availability of synthetic polymers with continuously more sophisticated properties and performances. The best way for the polymer chemist to face this challenge is to tailor the molecular structure of the chains. Nowadays, the progress in the living/controlled polymerization mechanisms is such that the so-called macromolecular engineering is a vivid reality.
