Preparation of Black Poly(Methyl Methacrylate-Ethyleneglycol Dimethacrylate) Microspheres Using Metallic Complex Dyes
Abstract: In this study, we synthesized polymethyl methacrylate cross-linked microspheres and functionalized the surface of the microspheres with amine groups, and discussed the effect of functionalization and the change of the surface morphology of the microspheres. This research uses 1:2 metal composite acid dye to dye self-synthesized microspheres with uniform particle size, and successfully prepares black polymethyl methacrylate cross-linked microspheres, which are applied to spacer microspheres.
