A novel method to produce fluorine-containing polyacrylate emulsion is presented. It is prepared by the copolymerization of n-methyl methacrylate, n-styrene, n-butyl acrylate, and α-methacrylic acid in the presence of swollen particles of PTFE. The structure and properties of the polymers are characterized by GPC, PSD, SEM, and XPS. The number-average molar mass (Mn) 51,332, and the polydispersity 5.8688 are obtained. The mean diameter of latex particles is 300nm. Scanning electron microscopy reveals that particles of the emulsion are well dispersed. Meanwhile, the F1S content of the surface on the latex membrane is 8.99%. It is shown that the method of mixing micron and nanometer-sized particles should be made the next step of research. It is also proved that inertia polymers can be used in emulsion property modification. © 2005 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci 99: 558–562, 2006
