Compressed fluid sedimentation polymerization

  title={Compressed fluid sedimentation polymerization},
  author={Haifei Zhang and Andrew I Cooper},
In this paper, we report the synthesis of uniform, spherical cross-linked polymer beads by sedimentation polymerization1 in compressed fluid solvents. Supercritical fluid (SCF) solvents have provoked much interest recently in the area of polymer synthesis.2 The prevention of environmental pollution is high on the global agenda, and the development of sustainable solvent alternatives such as SCFs is an important challenge both for academia and for industry.3 The unique physical properties… CONTINUE READING
