Abstract The reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer chain length dependent termination (RAFT-CLD-T) technique allows a simple experimental approach to obtain chain-length-dependent termination rate coefficients as a function of conversion, k(x). This work provides a set of criteria by which accurate k(x) can be obtained using the RAFT-CLD-T method. Visualization of three-dimensional plots varying all kinetic rate parameters and starting concentrations demonstrates that only certain combinations give an accurate extraction of k(x). The current study provides hands-on guidelines for experimentalists applying the RAFT-CLD-T method.
