Formation of Hollow Polymeric Microspheres with Functionalized Surface on the Basis of Latex Particles with Multilayered Structure



Summary: Latices with “core-shell” particle morphology containing polar “core” and a shell on the basis of copolymer of styrene and functional vinyl monomer (allyl alcohol, vinyl acetate, methacrylic acid) has been obtained as a result of graft-copolymerization initiated from the surface of (meth)acrylate latex particles previously modified with functional polyperoxides. The processes of functional shell grafting as well as the processes of latex particle swelling with obtaining hollow microspheres due to neutralization of core carboxylic groups have been studied.
