Abstract: Dual fluorescently labeled polymer particles were prepared in a downscaled Pickering-type miniemulsion system. Stable dispersions were obtained and the size of the hybrid particles could be varied between ca. 180 and 430 nm. Silica nanoparticles were employed as sole emulsifier, which were labeled by a fluorescein dye (FITC) or (encapsulated) quantum dots, and the polymer core was labeled by a perylene derivative. Downscaling of the Pickering-type miniemulsion system is intriguing by itself as it allows the use of precious nanoparticles as emulsifiers. Here, silica particles with a fluorescent core and an overall diameter between 20 and 40 nm were prepared and employed as stabilizer. The dual excitation and emission of both dyes was tested by fluorescence measurements and confocal laser scanning microscopy (cLSM). © 2012 American Chemical Society.
