      Abstract: The union between polymer science and   microfluidics is reviewed. Fluids in microreactors allow the   synthesis of a wide range of polymeric materials with unique   properties. We begin by discussing the important fluid dynamics   that dominate the behavior of fluids on the micrometer scale. We   then progress through a comprehensive analysis of the polymeric   materials synthesized to date. This highlight concludes with an   overview of the methods used to make microreactors. We   enthusiastically endorse microreactors as a powerful approach to   making materials with controlled properties, although we have   tried to provide a critical eye to help the nonexpert enter the   field. © 2006 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
