|Title:||Capturing nanoscale in network gels by microemulsion polymerization|
|Published:||December 03, 2012|
|Abstract:||Difficulties in capturing nanoscale structure by polymerizing microemulsions have persisted with the use of thermal initiation. Bicontinuous microemulsion polymerization with reactive surfactant monomer and cross-linker was done with only a 20% increase in correlation length. Both the network gel and the precursor microemulsion were transparent and devoid of microphase separation.|
