Abstract

original image

Biphasic Janus particles with a precisely tunable internal morphology are fabricated using a novel, versatile, and robust technique. This technique can be used in conjunction with microfluidics to produce monodisperse particles, or can be combined with bulk emulsification techniques to produce large quantities of particles.
