Abstract

In this account, we review recent developments in the preparation of various functional and nanostructured polymer particles by precipitation-based methods. First, we present an overview of recent polymer particle preparation methods including methods for precipitation-based particle preparation. Next, we introduce the self-organized precipitation and its advantages. We discuss the morphological control of polymer particles based on the types of polymer materials used for particle preparation. We also introduce the preparation of organicinorganic composite particles. Finally, we discuss the future outlook of nanostructured polymer particles.
