Hybrid biological spores wrapped in a mesh composed of interpenetrating polymer nanoparticles as “patchy” Pickering stabilizers

Abstract

We describe a new method for the decoration of the intricate morphology of spore particles with polymer nanoparticles and investigate their behaviour at liquid–liquid interfaces. We found a large difference in the interfacial activity between spherical microspheres and the anisotropic particles synthesized here and describe this in terms of particle wettability.
