The synthesis of polymer-vesicle latex particles by using extruded vesicles of dimethyldioctadecyl ammonium bromide (DODAB) via an atom transfer radical polymerization–based approach is reported. Cryo-TEM characterization revealed the growth of polymer from one side of the vesicle, and the final morphology of the resulting particles was affected by monomer feed composition. Protrusions or nanocapsules were synthesized when MMA:BA:EGDMA or MMA were used, respectively. Furthermore, it was found that the co-oligomer composition and chain length affect the resulting morphologies of the particles. Graphical abstract: [Figure not available: see fulltext.]
