This study involves the use of RAFT polymerization in the ‘‘grafting through’’ method. The 3-(trimethoxysilyl)propyl methacrylate (MPS) was used as a coupling molecule to anchor the polymer chains on the surface. Core-shell typed TiO2-polymers or ZnO-polymers were prepared. Methyl methacrylate (MMA) and a methacrylic monomer containing a hydrolytically labile bond such as the tert-butyldimethylsilyl methacrylate (MASi) were grafted on the nanoparticles surface. This is the first report of grafting such polymers to the surface of MPS-modified titanium dioxide or zinc oxide nanoparticles by the ‘‘grafting through’’ method using the RAFT process.
