Abstract

A method for forming superparticles, comprising: contacting a source dispersed phase, a sink dispersed phase, and a continuous phase, the source dispersed phase comprising a solvent and a plurality of particles dispersed within the solvent, the sink dispersed phase comprising a solvent, the solvent of the sink dispersed phase having a solubility in the continuous phase at a given temperature that is less than a solubility of the solvent of the source dispersed phase in the continuous phase at that given temperature, and the contacting being performed such that at least some solvent of the source dispersed phase migrates to the sink dispersed phase so as to give rise to a plurality of superparticles that comprise assembled particles of the source dispersed phase
