Impact of Fabrication Parameters on the Internal Structure of Poly(3-hexylthiophene) Nanoparticles

Abstract
Morphological control of organic functional materials is central to understanding and improving upon current technologies. The ability to create hierarchical assemblies with purposeful design from nano to meso scale has remained largely unattainable. This body of work aims to provide a foundation for creating nanoscale domains of poly (3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) that can be used as building blocks to larger scale assemblies. We present a method for the fabrication of P3HT nanoparticles on the ability to vary the particle size and more importantly, the internal structure. We have identified the oil phase and surfactant as parameters able to influence the nature of P3HT aggregate within nanoparticles fabricated through the miniemulsion process.
