Abstract

Nanoporous polymeric microcapsules were produced in the stable manner for the various concentrations of a block copolymer in an organic solvent. The size of the microcapsules was increased while that of the nano pores were decreased by increasing the concentration. Their hallow characteristics was also visualized. To control the concentration of the block copolymer provides an effective way to control feature sizes, compared with other wises using temperature or stirring rate.
