Production of Unilamellar Vesicles Using an Inverted Emulsion

  title={Production of Unilamellar Vesicles Using an Inverted Emulsion},
  author={Sophie Pautot and Barbara J Frisken and David A Weitz},
We investigateamethod for the controlledassemblyofunilamellarvesicles consistingofbilayersassembled one leaflet at a time. We use water-in-oil emulsions stabilized by the material for the inner leaflet and produce vesicles by passing the water droplets through a second oil-water interface, where they become coated with the outer leaflet. We have used this technique to form vesicles from lipids, mixed lipid and surfactant systems, and diblock copolymers. The stability of lipid-stabilized… CONTINUE READING
