Deep cavitand vesicles – multicompartmental hosts

Author affiliations


The synthesis and characterization of vesicles assembled from deep cavitands in water is reported. These vesicles act as hosts for three different types of guests: the cavitands bind small guest molecules, the bilayer attracts larger hydrophobic guests and the inner aqueous compartment contains hydrophilic molecules.
