Hollow polymer particles with dimensions in the submicrometer region possess great potential for encapsulation of large quantities of and large sized guest molecules into their empty core domains. Conventional molecular chemistry requires costly synthetic procedures and only in special cases allows such particles to be prepared with exact control over their size and morphology. Therefore various self-assembly and templating approaches have been developed which will be briefly introduced in this article.
