Abstract

The subject of miniemulsion polymerization is reviewed. The approach taken is one that combines a review of the technology with historical and tutorial aspects. Rather than developing an absolutely exhaustive review, a tutorial approach has been taken, emphasizing the critical features and advantages of miniemulsion polymerization. In keeping with this tutorial approach, a discussion of conventional emulsion polymerization is included in order to be able to compare and contrast miniemulsion polymerization and conventional emulsion polymerization later in the review. Areas where miniemulsion polymerization has been adopted commercially, or where it is likely to be adopted are highlighted.
