Abstract: A microemulsion system consisting of methyl methacrylate (MMA), 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) and a crosslinking agent, ethylene glycol dimethacrylate, in water using sodium dodecyl sulfate as a surface-active agent was investigated. A study on the phase behaviour of the system was conducted to determine the type of microstructures that may be present. Polymerization was carried out at room temperature using dibenzyl ketone as a photoinitiator. The morphology (microstructure) of the resulting polymeric materials was found to depend strongly on the composition (water content, surfactant content, and MMA to HEMA ratio) of the precursor microemulsions. © 1995.
