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.
