Abstract

We have developed a novel and commericially viable route to a wide range of highly uniform, amphiphilic core-shell particles in nano-to micro-scaled sizes. Novel feature of this synthetic approach is that it combines graft copolymerization, in situ self-assembly of the resulting amphiphilic graft copolymers and emulsion polymerization in a one-step synthesis. This versatile methodology allows us to design and tailor-made particles for specific applications through selection of appropriate amino-containing water-soluble polymers and hydrophobic monomers.
