A water-soluble poly(dimethylsiloxane-b-ferrocenylsilane) diblock copolymer containing a hydrophilic cationic polyferrocene block, which is formed in a self-assembly process, yields redox-active vesicles with a diameter of approximately 85 nm (see figure) in which the organometallic block is located on both the outside and the inside of the formed aggregates.
