Versatile chambers: A microfluidic technique is used to generate polymersomes with multiple compartments using double emulsions with different morphology as templates (see scheme). The polymersomes could be utilized for encapsulation of multiple substances and as reaction vessels that enable triggered reaction with controlled stoichometry of the reactants.
