We report the application of the Monte Carlo simulation to phase separation dynamics. First, we deal with the phase separation under shear flow. The thermal effect on the phase separation is discussed, and the anisotropic growth exponents in the late stage are estimated. Next, we study the effect of surfactants on the three-component solvents. We obtain the mixture of macrophase separation and microphase separation, and investigate the dynamics of both phase separations.
