Research into the synthesis of sequential, poly(n-butyl acrylate), PnBA/polystyrene, PS, IPN microgel (μ-gel) dispersions in organic media was performed. Poly(styreneco- divinylbenzene), PSIDVB (0, 1, 5 & 10 weight % DVB), particles were synthesised by emulsion copolymerisation and these microgels were characterised by dynamic mechanical thermal analysis (DMT A), gel permeation chromatography and diffuse reflectance Fourier transform infrared (DRIFT) spectroscopy.....
