Furthermore, they observed decreasing average particle size with increasing potassium peroxodisulfate concentration as was also found by Goodwin et al. Fritz et al. (lines 8 and 9 in Tab. 5) prepared cationic polystyrene latexes as model drug carrier systems. They found an influence of the kind of cationic initiator as 2,2'-azobis(2-amidinopropane)dihydrochloride resulted in polydisperse particle size distribution whereas 2,2'-azobis(2-(2-imidazoline-2-yl)propane)dihydrochloride led to smaller particles with a monodisperse particle size distribution.

Tab. 005 25 26 1 Latex Particles Transmission electron microscopy pictures of monodisperse polystyrene particles prepared according to the prescriptions given in Tab. 6; the bar indicates 100, 200, 300, and 500 nm for MD1, MD2, MD3, and MD4, respectively. Fig. 5 The polymerizations were carried out in all-glass reactors of either 100 ml (MD1, MD3) or 250 ml (MD2, MD4) reaction volume. The reactors were equipped with a stirrer (stirrer speed was adjusted to 300 rpm), a reflux condenser, a nitrogen inlet and outlet, a heating jacket to control the temperature, and a valve on the bottom to remove the latex.
