(materials)
A thermodynamically stable dispersion of two immiscible liquids, stabilized by surfactants; it is typically clear because the dispersed droplets are less than 100 nanometers in diameter.

Emulsion, miniemulsion, and microemulsion polymerizations are techniques that have been used in the preparation of nanogels [17-21], Polymerization in microemulsion leads to well-defined and small nanogel particles owing to the nanometer size of the microemulsion droplets [22-25], Conversely, heterophase polymerization is a term encompassing in addition to the aforementioned techniques, suspension polymerizations, and variations of all of these such as reactions in which the polymerization is initiated by the addition of monomer in a semicontinuous fashion [26],
