Double emulsion-templated nanoparticle colloidosomes with selective permeability

[PDF]531 KB


Nanoparticle colloidosomes, shown in the SEM image, are generated by using water-in-oil-in-water double emulsions as templates. Hydrophobic silica nanoparticles that are dispersed in the oil phase stabilize the double emulsions, and subsequently become the shell of the colloidosomes upon removal of the organic solvent as shown in the figure.
