Stabilization of highly reactive reagents upon nanoscale encapsulation

Researchers have demonstrated that the radical initiators used widely in the synthesis of polymers and organic compounds can be remarkably stabilized against light irradiation and heat through encapsulation by a molecular capsule. They have also revealed that the stabilized initiators can be used for usual polymer synthesis.
