Pickering-type stabilized nanoparticles by heterophase polymerization

Abstract

The preparation of nanoparticles in a soap-free system is highly attractive, as surfactants may influence and deteriorate subsequent applications. Thereby, the assembly of solid particles on droplets/particles is well known as Pickering-type stabilization. The resulting hybrid nanocomposites offer in general a rough surface and are highly intriguing for potential drug delivery systems, coating applications, and so forth. This review highlights developments in production and application of Pickering-type nanoparticles synthesized via heterophase polymerization techniques in emulsion, miniemulsion, dispersion, and suspension. We will focus our discussion on systems, wherein stabilization of the final nanometer-sized hybrids is exclusively accomplished via particle stabilizers. In case surfactants are used during preparation, they only serve as pre-treating agents to modify the surface properties of the particle stabilizer, and not being employed for the purpose of droplet/particle stabilization.
