We report a simple strategy to produce single and multipatch particles via the conventional dip-coating process. In this method, a close-packed monolayer of micron-sized silica particles is first formed at air-polymer solution interface, followed by dip coating of particles on a glass substrate. The simultaneous deposition of both polymer and particles on the substrate gives rise to a thin polymer layer and a monolayer of silica particles. Sonication of the substrate leads to the formation of a polymeric patch on one side of the particles. The patch shape depends on the aging of the polymer film prior to sonication. With aging time the patch evolves from ring-like to disk-like. This technique allows easy control of patch width by varying the concentration of polymer in the solution. We further show that the number of patches on the particle can be increased by controlling the concentration of silica particles at the interface such that surface coverage is less than that required for the formation of a close-packed monolayer. The single and multipatch particles are characterized by scanning electron and optical microscopy for the patch size, shape, and number distribution. The as-synthesized particles are used as a model to study self-assembly of colloids with electrostatic repulsion and patchy hydrophobic attractions due to polymeric patches. We find the formation of doublets and finite-sized clusters due to patchy interactions. Dip coating can be automated to produce large quantities of patchy particles, which is one of the major limitations of other methods of producing patchy particles. © 2015 American Chemical Society.
