Abstract Recent advances in controlled polymerization have led to increased activity in controlled free radical polymerization in unconventional solvents. This short report focuses on the renewed interest in dispersion polymerization in supercritical CO2 brought about by the application of controlled free radical polymerization techniques. The emergence of novel and industrially-applicable materials is discussed, as well as the dependence of material properties and morphology upon factors such as surfactant type and how it is employed during the polymerization.
