A microfluidic platform for integrated synthesis and dynamic light scattering measurement of block copolymer micelles

Synthesis of structured polymers is a highly active research area, whose main goal is to make polymers with useful properties for important applications.1 Ideally, therefore, polymer synthesis and materials characterization would be associated as closely as possible. Microfluidic platforms offer one strategy for effectively integrating the production and evaluation aspects of materials discovery into a simple continuous process.
