Janus particles are biphasic colloids that have two sides with distinct chemistry and wettability. Because of their amphiphilicity, Janus particles present a unique opportunity for stabilizing multiphasic fluid mixtures such as emulsions. Our work is motivated by one class of molecular amphiphiles that change their surfactant properties in response to environmental stimuli. Depending on the environmental conditions, these stimuli-responsive molecular amphiphiles are able to assemble into… CONTINUE READING
