Living polymerization, particularly the criteria of living polymerization, plays an important role in the course of polymer chemistry. In this paper, we summarize the criteria of living polymerization and analyze the sources of each criterion carefully. These teaching contents can be used as supplements to the existing textbooks, which help students understand the connotation and denotation of living polymerization deeply.

Key words: Living polymerization, Criteria, Polymer chemistry, Anionic polymerization
