Organic-stable microfluidic devices are used for combinatorial measurements of polymerization reactions on chip. Formulation, processing, and measurement are combined on one chip device for the generation of combinatorial polymer libraries. A monomer / crosslinker gradient is formed inside a collection of organic phase droplets which are then photopolymerization to form polymer particles, and collected into composition arrays. On-chip Raman spectroscopy coupled with digital image analysis allows for quantification of composition, monomer conversion, and polymer shrinkage.
