We present a simple way to build up well-controlled coacervate-core dendrimicelles by assembly of anionic PAMAM dendrimers with a cationic-neutral diblock copolymer. Upon increasing pH, the formation of micellar structures shows constant size but the number of dendrimer molecules incorporated in one micelle decreases, following the charge stoichiometry formation rules; concomitantly, the salt stability increases. This study shows the straightforward tuning of macromolecular core-units and related micelle properties.
