Abstract The influencing factors,such as feed methods,monomer hydrophilicity,initator,on the morphology of composite polymer particles were introduced. The thermodynamic approaches to predict particle morphology were summarized and the rule of minimum interfacial free energy change was discussed in detail. The progress in morphology kinetics and particle design were also reviewed in this paper.
