Abstract

Toner compositions obtained by a process which comprises forming an organic phase comprised of polymer and solvent, such as toluene, xylene, or halogenated components including trichloroethylene, forming an aqueous phase comprised of water and pigment, and flushing the pigment into the organic phase followed by dilution. In another embodiment, the toner is obtained by a process which comprises forming an organic phase by the mixing of a polymer and a solvent, forming an aqueous phase cake by mixing water and pigment, such as magnetite or carbon black, flushing the pigment into the polymer present in the organic phase, removing the water and solvent whereby the pigment is permanently associated with the polymer, diluting the aforementioned formed toner comprised of polymer and pi ent, crushing the
