Microspheric Janus particles with maghemite nanoparticles (NPs) in the hemisphere were investigated. Poly(styrene) (PS)-grafted maghemite NPs were embedded into the PS phase of a PS-poly(isoprene) (PI) Janus polymer particle prepared by a Self-organized Precipitation (SORP) method. The obtained Janus particles showed magnetic field responsive drifts and rotation in water. Potential application in electric paper pixels can be expected from the anisotropic magnetic response of the particle.
