Since gradient polymeric nanoparticles have enhanced mechanical, surface and optical properties, they are used in high performance coating systems by the paint industry, which are formulated with reduced volatile organic compound content and exhibit high gloss. New characterization method using X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS)  for these nanoparticles was developed in this research.
