A method was developed for producing micrometer-sized, highly monodisperse polystyrene particles in single stage polymerization in aqueous media. The method employs an amphoteric surfactant, dimethyldodecylbetaine, that is added to the reaction system of styrene/K(2)S(2)O(8)/water in early stage of reaction. Polymerizations were carried out over a range of… CONTINUE READING
