A simple and efficacious procedure for the synthesis of magnetite nanoparticles has been achieved via a sonochemical miniemulsion polymerization process. The sonochemically synthesized magnetite encapsulated polymer latex particles exhibit excellent colloidal stability and strong magnetic properties, and are of a size that makes them technologically relevant. This novel method may be readily extended to the preparation of multiple combinations of different polymers and encapsulated materials.
