Polymerizations in oil-in-oil emulsions using 2D nanoparticle surfactants

Author affiliations

Abstract

Oil-in-oil emulsions are especially attractive for compartmentalized reactions with water-sensitive monomers which cannot be used with traditional oil/water emulsions. Herein, we demonstrate that alkylated graphene oxide nanosheets can be used as a surfactant for three different oil-in-oil emulsion polymerizations and to prepare closed-cell foams, hollow capsules, and functionalizable particles.
