From well-defined macromonomers to sterically-stabilised latexes to covalently cross-linkable colloidosomes: exerting control over multiple length scales

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new route to covalently cross-linkable colloidosomes has been developed via the assembly of sterically stabilised latex particles onto oil droplets. These latexes can be cross-linked from within the oil droplets via the steric stabiliser chains on the inner-particle surface using an oil-soluble polymeric diisocyanate. Such microcapsules can survive both surfactant and alcohol challenges.
