An initial evaluation was performed in preparation for new investigations comparing monolithic cross-linked polymeric particles with continuum viscoelastic fluids for control of liquid breakup and mass transport. This evaluation reports the survey results on past polymeric particles studied. The test liquids employed with viscoelastic additives were identified. These liquids were employed in sorption experiments to identify candidate polymeric particles for further experimentation. Polymer phase diagram theory was employed to predict solublesorptive systems and all predictions correctly yielded sorbed particles.
