Abstract

Preparation of micron size polymer particles which have desired morphology, size, and structure by emulsion polymerization is very difficult due to coagulation of latex particles and formation of second generation particles. But there are attractive merits such as preparation of structural and functional polymer particles in seeded emulsion polymerization. Seeded emulsion polymerization of n-butyl acrylate(BA) was carried out to investigate the effects of stirring rate, reaction temperature, concentration of initiator, emulsifier, and cross-linking agent on the particle size and size distribution. By the combination of suitable reaction conditions, we succeeded in preparing $0.14{\sim}3.67{\mu}m$ diameter of poly(n-butyl acrylate)(PBA) particles using sequential seeded emulsion polymerization.
