We report here sequence-specific liquid/liquid extraction of single-stranded DNA using reverse micelles (water-in-oil microemulsions), in which hybridization between a DNA-surfactant and a target DNA having a complementary sequence allows selective transport of the target DNA to an organic phase from a mixture of DNA oligonucleotides.
