Challenges for industrialization of miniemulsion polymerization

Miniemulsion polymerization facilitates the synthesis complex materials that cannot be produced otherwise. These materials have a broad range of potential applications including among others adhesives, coatings, anticounterfeiting, textile pigments, bio-based polymer dispersions, gene and drug delivery, anti-viral therapy, tissue engineering, catalyst supports, polymeric photoresists, energy storage and self-healing agents
