Emulsion Polymerization Methods and Nanomaterials

Emulsion polymerization is a type of radical polymerization that typically starts with an emulsion incorporating water, monomer, and surfactant.


The Park Systems 2019 Materials Matter Material Science Research and AFM Webinar Series continues with Emulsion Polymerization Methods and Nanomaterials. Emulsion polymerization and nanomaterials bring a hierarchy of ordering and scale. The oil/water and water/oil environments combine surfactant technologies and pickering emulsion behavior. This installment of the webinar series will review some of the examples based on janus nanoparticles and interfacial chemistry.
This is the final webinar in our 2019 Material Science Research and AFM Webinar Series “Materials Matter,” designed to help researchers understand leading edge developments in Materials Science Research and Applications using Atomic Force Microscopy.
