Synthesis of Monodispersed Microspheres from Laplace Pressure Induced Droplets in Micromolds



original image

A novel synthesis method for microspheres using micromolds based on the Laplace pressure difference is presented. This simple micromolding technique shows flexibility to synthesize particles using various reaction schemes, such as photopolymerization, sol-gel reactions, and colloidal assembly. This method can produce highly monodispersed spherical particles, without the need to use complicated control. It allows high flexibility in choosing materials and size control.
