Despite recent intensive research, especially focused on the design of different nitroxide structures, the control of methacrylic esters is still an important challenge for NMP. This chapter aims at covering not only the main reasons for the difficulty achieving NMP of methacrylates but also the most successful strategies that have been developed to control the polymerization of such monomers by NMP.
