Ethyl cellulose was hybridized with methyl methacrylate and butyl acrylate via mini-polymerization. The polymerization process was traced to obtain a stable reaction system. The effects of the EC content and viscosity on the monomer droplet size, the particle size and the monomer conversion were investigated. It was showed that the stability of the latex dispersion was strongly dependent of the EC content and viscosity. With investigation on ethyl cellulose series, initiator and crosslinker, the stable mini-emulsion with 10% ethyl cellulose was obtained under conditions of crosslinker and LPO as initiator.
