Colloidosomes formed by nonpolar/polar/nonpolar nanoball amphiphiles.

Abstract

Fullerene-based amphiphiles are able to form bilayer vesicles in aqueous solution. In this study, the self-assembly behavior of polymer-tethered nanoballs (NBs) with nonpolar/polar/nonpolar (n-p-n') motif in a selective solvent is investigated by dissipative particle dynamics. A model NB bears two hydrophobic polymeric arms (n'-part) tethered on an… (More)
