As mentioned in the above, in most of free radical polymerizations, the polymerization rate is linearly dependent on the monomer concentration.
Since SAP is derived from water-soluble monomers, an inverse-suspension polymerization is suitable for the preparation of spherical SAP polymer microparticles.

A series of styrene polymerizations were performed varying the TEMPO to BPO ratio from 0.9 to 1.5.
(1997) published a report showing a series of styrene polymerizations performed with varying ratios of [TEMPO]/[BPO], from 1.35 to 0.5.
As part of the study aimed at understanding what was considered to be the low "nucleation efficiency" of droplets compared to particles (radical entry efficiency) in seeded emulsion polymerizations, polymer was added to the monomer phase (SLS/CA as stabilizer/costabilizer) prior to forming the miniemulsion so as to create "polymer particles" at low conversion (e.g., 1%).
To gain a more thorough mechanistic understanding of these nitroxide-mediated living free radical miniemulsion polymerizations, TEMPO was replaced by an initiating species comprised of short polystyrene chains capped by TEMPO, these being referred to as TTOPS (TEMPO-terminated oligomers of polystyrene).
(4-6) Therefore, the selection and usage of new surfactants and cosurfactants in miniemulsion polymerization is an interesting research issue.
Miniemulsion polymerization without surfactant or with new surfactant and cosurfactant is also frequently reported.
He joined the Rohm and Haas Company in 1984, and began his career in the polymer synthesis area, focusing on emulsion polymerization for coatings applications.
Lau's main research interests have been in novel polymers and materials design through synthetic methods and fundamental understanding of polymer systems including controlled radical polymerization, emulsion polymerization, controlled structure polymers applications, structure property relationship, and latex film formation.
