Single-step microfluidic fabrication of soft monodisperse polyelectrolyte microcapsules by interfacial complexation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Common methods for fabrication of polyelectrolyte microcapsules rely on a multi-step process. We propose a single-step approach to generate polyelectrolyte microcapsules with 1–2 μm shells based on polyelectrolyte complexation across a water/oil droplet interface and study the effect of parameters controlling the polyelectrolyte complexation on shell thickness.
