Fabrication of polymeric Janus particles by droplet microfluidics

Janus particles (JPs), with their fascinating property of asymmetry, have received considerable attention in recent years in the fields of colloidal and particulate chemistry. The particles offer a range of exciting potential applications as they possess two distinctive parts with different chemistry, colors, polarities, and/or surfaces. Currently, a number of methodologies are available for the synthesis of JPs. This review presents a short description of polymeric JPs synthesized by droplet microfluidics.
