Manit Nithitanakul and colleagues prepared mesoporous polyHIPEs from styrene and ethylene glycol dimetacrylate (EGDMA) with a high internal phase emulsion (HIPE) technique. This technique used aqueous phase as a temporary template and oil phase as a continuous structure. PolyHIPEs morphology has an open cell structure with interconnected pores. The diameter of pore size ranged from 10–500 μm. The EGDMA comonomers, with hydroxyl groups on the structure, helped to increase the hydrophilic properties of the obtained polyHIPEs. Thus, their ability to adsorb and store large amounts of water, makes them attractive soil additives for use in agricultural industry. (DOI: 10.1002/app.45509).
