Self-assembled geometric liquid-crystalline nanoparticles imaged in three dimensions: hexosomes are not necessarily flat hexagonal prisms.

Abstract

Attempts to understand the complex 3D morphology of non-lamellar liquid-crystalline nanostructured particles, formed by the dispersion of a reversed hexagonal phase (hexosomes) and bicontinuous cubic phase (cubosomes) in water, have been limited by the lack of suitable 3D imaging techniques. Using cryo-field emission scanning electron microscopy, we show… (More)
