Esther Amstad, Shin-Hyun Kim, and David A. Weitz, "Photo- and Thermo-Responsive Polymersomes for Triggered Release," Angewandte Chemie International Edition (2012). (accepted for publication) (Equal contribution)
Thermo- and photo-responsive polymersomes are assembled using capillary microfluidic devices. Encapsulants can be selectively released from thermo-responsive polymersomes if they are incubated at temperatures of 40 °C or above while photo-responsive polymersomes selectively release encapsulants if illuminated with lasers.
