Preparation of Polymeric Nanocapsules by Gamma-ray-initiated Miniemulsion Polymerization
Hollow polystyrene (PS) nanocapsules were synthesized through gamma-ray-initiated miniemulsion polymerization by using an alkali-soluble polymeric surfactant (ASPS) as surfactant in the presence of hexadecane (HD). The results indicated that nanocapsules with different particle size and shell thickness could easily prepared by this method, and ASPS can promote the formation of completely hollow structures.
