Preparation of 10 mu m scale monodispersed particles by jetting flow in coaxial microfluidic devices
Ten microns scale monodispersed particles have a widespread use in various applications. In this work, we developed a novel and facile microfluidic method to generate various 10 mu m scale monodispersed polymer and hydrogel particles. The method involves the formation of monodispersed droplets by using stable jetting flow in a simple coaxial microfluidic device and solidifying the droplets in situ. We also added functional additives such as fluorescent dye into monomer droplets to generate functional fluorescent particles. The microfluidic method presented here is versatile to various materials and can add functional additives to form functional microparticles. (C) 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
