We present a simple capillary-based microfluidic method to fabricate monodisperse microgels composed of polymeric ionic liquids (PILs). We are able to tune the size, hydrophilicity/hydrophobicity and chemical nature of these microgels by selecting an appropriate anion from a diverse pool of anions. Further, these microgels can also stably accommodate organic indicators useful for pH sensing and remove ionic contaminants from water.
