Capturing nanoscale in network gels by microemulsion polymerization
Kirt A. Page, John Texter, Dustin England
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.
