Polystyrene/polycarbonate (PS/PC) composite hollow microspheres were successfully prepared via microencapsulation method. Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), differential scanning calorimetry, and thermogravimetric analysis were used for the characterization of the obtained hollow microspheres. SEM images showed that there were a big cavity and some small cavities inside the composite hollow microspheres, and the hollow microspheres prepared at 42 °C… Expand
