Softness and particle size of PNIPAM microgels as two key parameters are compared. In detail, the Particulate stabilizer recipes for preparation of PNIPAM microgels with controlled softness and particle size are ﬁrstly studied. The Softness softness and particle size of PNIPAM microgels are eﬀectively characterized by DLS, SEM and TEM. After ob- Particle size taining the desired microgels, they are used as particulate stabilizer in dispersion polymerization for preparing PNIPAM microgels polystyrene nanoparticles. The results demonstrate that soft microgels possess better stabilization capacity than hard ones even with smaller particle size. A plausible explanation is proposed in which contact area provided by PNIPAM microgels contributes a lot to the stabilization
