Abstract

Hollow polymeric nanospheres with shells consisting of inner hydrophilic and outer hydrophobic polymer chains are prepared by a surface-initiated living radical polymerization of 2-trimethylsilyloxyethyl acrylate and methyl methacrylate from initiator-modified silica nanoparticles; these nanospheres are subsequently prepared by intraparticle cross-linking and by dissolution of silica matrices with HF. The translation behavior of hydrophilic substrates from an aqueous phase to an oil phase through the nanocapsules is investigated.
