    We report the controlled heterocoagulation of platelets and spheres, leading to the formation of colloidally stable, anisotropic hybrid particles. Anionically charged, nanosized polymer latex spherical particles were heterocoagulated on the surface of cationically charged hexagonal gibbsite platelets via the adsorption of a single layer of spheres onto both sides of the hexagonal platelets. The latex particles were annealed at a temperature above the Tg of the latex polymer, resulting in a thin polymer layer covering the gibbsite platelets. This heterocoagulation approach enabled the encapsulation of hydrophilic inorganic particles with polymer latexes and the formation of anisotropic hybrid particles.
