Multiscale design of radical polymerization in emulsion

An improved understanding of mesoscale phenomena (radical exit and entry, phase partitioning, surfactant role, ionic stabilization, particle nucleation, growth and aggregation or coalescence) in radical polymerization in aqueous mini-, micro and macro-emulsions using both experimental and computational methods, targeting improved properties of nanostructured materials produced in environmentally benign solvents such as water.
