TREND: Chemical Routes Toward Multicompartment Colloids

Daniel Crespy,* Roland Hinrich Staff, Tanja Becker, Katharina Landfester

Complex colloidal structures can be elaborated via a cornucopia of synthetic pathways. The different routes are classified in: assembly of colloids, synthesis with the use of sacrificial templates, and internal phase separation in colloidal droplets. A tentative analogy between the basic arithmetic operations and these routes is proposed.
