Homogeneous Nucleation of Polymer Colloids, IV: The Role of Soluble Oligomeric Radicals
Polymer colloids can be formed by the free radical polymerization of organic olefinic monomers in liquids which are solvents for the monomers and non-solvents for the resulting polymers. Ordinarily a stabilizer is added which is capable of adsorption at the newly forming interface during the period of particle formation.
