Smart colloidosomes with a dissolution trigger

Author affiliations


This paper reports the assembly and pH-triggered dissolution of a novel type of colloidosome microcapsules formed by self-assembly of responsive particles made from enteric coating polymers onto double emulsion templates; measurements of the capsules' permeability are complemented by evidence for fast and complete capsule dissolution in response to a mild pH stimulus.
