Abstract

A new type of double emulsion droplets is fabricated by combining the methods of microfluidic emulsification and macroscopic phase separation within individual aqueous droplets (see picture). This monodisperse double emulsion is promising for bioencapsulation in aqueous capsules and the release/absorption of aqueous solutes.
