Microdroplets are naturally well-defined reactors for performing reactions on the microscale. An innovative technique is presented to achieve one-step compound droplet formation in a microfluidic-channel structure. The image shows a droplet in the formation process and a droplet flowing downstream of the channel with mixing/reaction occurring inside it. Red and green colors denote different regents.
