Abstract

Flow lithography is a powerful synthesis tool that enables the creation of microparticles with complex morphologies and chemical patterns. In current flow lithography, PDMS (polydimethylsiloxane) flow channels are necessary because the process requires local inhibition of polymerization near channel interfaces via oxygen permeation through the PDMS. This current requirement places restrictions on both device construction and the use of solvents and/or monomers which do not swell the PDMS. Here, we present flow lithography that utilizes hydrodynamically focused inert fluids in oxygen impermeable channels made from NOA (Norland Optical Adhesive) channels. The new process greatly expands the compatible monomer and solvents, allows for on-the-fly height particle adjustment and allows for use of more durable channel materials.
