Biomicrofluidics. 2016 Mar 15;10(2):024106. doi: 10.1063/1.4943897. eCollection 2016.We report on the feasible fabrication of microfluidic devices for ferroelectric polymers' synthesis in a rapid and stable fashion. Utilizing micro-mixing and flow-focusing in microchannels, poly(vinylidene fluoride-trifluoroethylene) and copper phthalocyanine are uniformly dispersed in one hydrogel particle, which are then demonstrated to immediate and complete on-chip steady polymerization by moderate ultraviolet treatment.
