The general mechanism of the radical polymerization of fluorinated monomers includes six elementary reactions (table 1): (1) the initiation by the homolytic cleavage of a molecule with low thermal stability (usually a peroxide); (2) the chain propagation; (3) the chain transfer to monomer; (4) the chain transfer to polymer; (5) the terminal double bond reaction; and (6) the bimolecular termination (through disproportionation or combination) (ref.
