    Abstract In the present study, the combined miniemulsion and solvent evaporation (MESE) method was employed to encapsulate solvent black B (SOB) dye in poly (methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) to produce dye/polymer composite colorants. Using dynamic light scattering tests, the effect of the formulation variables on the size and size distribution of the prepared nanoparticles was examined. Transmission electron microscopy, UV–visible spectrophotometry, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and elemental analysis results indicate that {SOB} was successfully encapsulated in the {PMMA} matrix using the {MESE} method. The resulting composite colorant could be dispersed in water. It also exhibited high light fastness and water-fastness.
