    The invention provides for a process for removing thiocarbonylthio groups from polymer prepared by RAFT polymerization, the process comprising:
    introducing into a flow reactor a solution comprising the RAFT polymer in solvent; and promoting a reaction within the flow reactor that removes the thiocarbonylthio groups so as to form a solution that flows out of the reactor comprising the RAFT polymer absent the thiocarbonylthio groups.
