Temperature-sensitive collapse: The lower critical solution temperature of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) encapsulated inside polyelectrolyte microcapsules is studied in dependence of the nature and the amount of different salts added to the system. The ability to tune and finely control the temperature-sensitive collapse of encapsulated PNIPAM (see series of confocal pictures) is demonstrated and shows potential for use in microsensors or drug-delivery systems.
