Atomic transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) of acrylamide has been accomplished in aqueous media at room temperature. By using methyl 2-chloropropionate (MeClPr) as the initiator and tris[2-(dimethylamino)ethyl]-amine (Me6TREN)/copper halogenide (CuX) as the catalyst system, different linear polyacrylamides with apparent molecular weights up to >150 000 g/mol were synthesized with dispersities as low as 1.39. The molecular weights agreed well with the theoretical ones at relatively low-medium monomer/initiator ratios (
