Self-assembled polymeric micelles as amphiphilic particulate emulsifiers for controllable Pickering emulsions

Author affiliations

Abstract

Amphiphilic Pickering particles are of immense importance because of their dominant ability to affect the emulsion stability and type. Among the present amphiphilic particulate emulsifiers to prepare controllable Pickering emulsion, there is increasing evidence that self-assembled polymeric micelles are comparatively effective and they have gained attention recently. In this review, the important progress in self-assembled micelles based on amphiphilic copolymers for controllable Pickering emulsions is systematically summarized. A self-assembled micelle is used to design a controllable amphiphilic polymeric precursor and then self-assembles into the Pickering particle. We highlight block and random copolymer micelles that have been successfully employed in controlling Pickering emulsions, which aims to draw more attention to these self-assembled Pickering particles.
