A communication in  Angewandte Chemie on multicompartment polymersomes has been accepted for publication 
Vesicles with multiple compartments: A microfluidic technique is used to generate polymersomes with multiple compartments using double emulsion with different morphology as templates. Our approach provides a unique way to fabricate multicompartment vesicles that could be utilized for encapsulation of multiple actives. This also creates new opportunities to use these polymersomes as controlled reaction vessels that enable triggered reaction with controlled stoichometry of the reactants.
