Cover Story (view full-size image): ABC star terpolymers are made of immiscible blocks and form vesicles with nanodomains that allow the transport of multiple cargos of different chemistry at the same time. We focus on raspberry vesicles made of A12B6C2 star terpolymers. B-block is solvophilic and the vesicles possess a raspberry-like surface morphology. A critical mass exists above which these vesicles are stable and their morphology is governed by the interaction between the A block (the longest solvophobic block) and the solvent. The amount of solvent the vesicle encapsulates, together with the permeability of its membrane, increase as the repulsion between polymer blocks and solvent decreases. View this paper
