Vesicle response to osmotic shock provides insight into membrane permeability, a highly relevant value for applications ranging from nanoreactor experimentation to drug delivery. The osmotic shock approach has been employed extensively to elucidate the properties of phospholipid vesicles (liposomes) and of varieties of polymer vesicles (polymersomes). This study seeks to compare the membrane response for two varieties of polymersomes, a comb-type siloxane surfactant, poly(dimethylsiloxane)-g… CONTINUE READING
