Abstract

Transient structural organization as a result of reversible interactions between individual structures is a significant characteristic of biological systems. Rearrangements of individual cells and cellular populations constantly take place as a result of interaction between different cells ‐ in response to chemical cues. Colloidal systems that operate out‐of‐equilibrium attempt to replicate the dynamic association displayed in biological systems. To probe such dynamic behavior, we present an out‐of‐equilibrium micellar nanosystem, which is able to engage in assembly and disassembly processes. Utilizing reversible disulfide chemistry via simultaneous oxidation and reduction of thiol‐functionalized micelles results in formation of dynamic meso‐structures. Such transient behavior is well‐controlled under non‐equilibrium conditions.
