Photo- and Thermoresponsive Polymersomes for Triggered Release

Microfluidics: Thermo- and photoresponsive polymersomes are assembled using capillary microfluidic devices. Encapsulants can be selectively released from the thermoresponsive polymersomes if they are incubated at and above temperatures of 40 °C, whereas the photoresponsive polymersomes selectively release encapsulants if illuminated with laser light (see picture; NP=nanoparticle).
