Radical polymerization in emulsion and in dispersion was applied to incorporate colloidal paramagnetic material into polystyrene latex particles. In emulsion, freshly precipitated magnetite (FeO · Fe2O3 = Fe3O4) with a diameter of approx. 10–20 nm was stabilized by different emulsifier systems including commercial ionic and nonionic stabilizers, surface-active initiators (polyethylene glycol [PEG] modified azo-initiators) and polymerizable emulsifiers (sodium-sulfopropyl alkylmaleates).
