We have a wide range of research area and interests in the space of colloidal science and emulsion polymer. Here we list a subset of research thrusts.
Synthesizing large-sized polystyrene colloidal particles
Highly monodisperse polystyrene (PS) microspheres in the size range of 1 to 10 μm were synthesized. The particle size distribution (PSD) of the these microspheres obtained was investigated. The PS microspheres with coefficient of variation (CV) values all less than 10% analyzed by scanning electron microscopy.
Synthesizing sub-micron colloidal particles by emulsion polimerization
Uniform polymer particles are synthesized by emulsion polimerization. This technique is able to adjust particle diameters (50 - 300 nm), glass transition temperatures (-50 to 100 degree Celsius), and volume fractions (< 50%). Part of EPI's latex library is listed here.
