Growin’up. 2015 marks the 11th anniversary of the independent discovery carried out by McCulloch and Yokozawa on the obtainment of regio-regular poly(3-alkylthiophene)s with defined molecular weights and distributions via a chain-growth Ni-catalysed polymerisation of suitable ABtype organometallic monomers. This finding stirred a tremendous interest on catalyst transfer polymerisation (CTP) that resulted in a remarkable broadening of its scope. In this contribution, we will provide our view on the lessons that can be drawn on major aspects influencing CTP, indicating, especially in the light of most recent reports, plausible research outlooks for the near future.
