In this communication, we report the successful synthesis of gradient morphology nanoparticles composed of poly(styrene-co-methyl methacrylate) and their characterisation using X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS). Gradient morphology latexes are of particular interest in the coatings industry as they are formulated with reduced volatile organic compound content and exhibit high gloss.
