Abstract

Telechelic α,ω-di(twin-tailed poly(N-isopropylacrylamides)) form polymersomes in water that increase in size by fusion when the water temperature exceeds the polymers cloud point temperature. Hybrid vesicles form in mixed suspensions of giant phospholipid liposomes and polymersomes by adsorption/fusion, and undergo further transformations, such as fission. This journal is
