The tailored synthesis of telechelic oligoperoxides (TO), oligoperoxide metal complexes (OMC) as well as the development of controlled radical polymerization in aqueous and hydrocarbon media initiated by them provides prospective approaches for the obtaining block, comb-like and highly branched polymers with the backbone and branches of various nature, polarity, length and reactivity. The polymer-precursors and final products were investigated by chemical, spectral and rheological techniques. The novel peroxide-containing copolymers were studied in the reactions of radical polymerization in heterogeneous and homogeneous media.
