Abstract RAFT controlled polymerisation of methyl methacrylate in various room temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) was carried out to investigate the effect of the anion on both propagation rate and control of molecular weight; a novel RAFT-tethered ionic liquid was prepared by click type chemistry to act as a compatibiliser thereby overcoming partitioning effects that were observed with the free RAFT agent and resulted in high levels of control never before achieved using RAFT in such a broad range of RTILs.
