Functional metal oxide/polymer hybrids with diverse properties (magnetic, optical, and catalytic) are prepared from both aqueous and alcoholic media. As reported on page 451 by Katharina Landfester, Rafael Muñoz-Espí, and co-workers, the inorganic nanocrystals are precipitated in situ on the surface of functionalized polymer particles. The image shows iron oxide nanoparticles on the surface of functionalized polystyrene beads.
