Particle nucleation occurs at an extremely low conversion or solid content. For instance, in ab initio surfactant-free styrene emulsion polymerization started with potassium peroxodisulfate, nucleation occurred at 60 8C after a prenucleation period ± in which aqueous-phase polymerization takes place ± of 431 s. 76 ´ 1013 particles are formed per cm±3 of water with an average particle size of 13 nm. 13 ´ 10±5 g cm±3 of water [112±114]. This example of an emulsion polymerization shows that an ab initio heterophase polymerization starts in the continuous phase and that it can be carried out even in the absence of both emulsifier and free monomer phase.

Double arrowheads mean the change in D is not unambiguous but depends on the level from which the changes were started. In other words the dependence of D on that parameter shows a minimum or maximum. For instance, increasing the surfactant concentration causes the average particle size to decrease whereas increasing the average size of monomer droplets in the case of suspension, microsuspension, miniemulsion, and microemulsion polymerization and proper initiation leads to an increase in D. This is indicated by the dotted lines in comparison with the starting situation depicted by full lines.
