Structure and behaviour of vesicles in the presence of colloidal particles

Author affiliations

Abstract

This review highlights recent studies that investigate the structural changes and behaviour of synthetic vesicles when they are exposed to colloidal particles. We will show examples to demonstrate the power of combining particles and vesicles in generating exciting supracolloidal structures. These suprastructures have a wide range of often responsive behaviours that take advantage of both the mechanical and morphological support provided by the vesicles and the associated particles with preset functionality. This review includes applications spanning a variety of disciplines, including chemistry, biology, physics and medicine.
