Inhibition in Reversible Addn.-Fragmentation chain Transfer (RAFT)-mediated polymns. is currently a controversial issue; here we provide evidence that the slow \"propagation\" of the initiating and leaving group radicals during the early part (the period of consumption of the initial RAFT agent) of Me acrylate RAFT-mediated polymn. has characteristics similar to inhibition
