Abstract

Polymerisation in vesicles leads to novel polymer colloid morphologies. Two morphologies are currently reported: the triple-shell and the parachute morphology. The termodynamic analysis of these two morphologies, presented here, stresses the importance of considering interfacial energies between surfactant and polymer. Within this framework, the parachute appeared to be the favoured morphology. The theoretical results are supported by experimental studies of vesicle-polymer hybrids.
