Liposomes in Polymersomes: Multicompartment System with Temperature-Triggered Release

Abstract : Multicompartmentalization is a key feature of eukaryotic cells, allowing separation and protection of species within the membrane walls. During the last years, several methods have been reported to afford synthetic multicompartment lipidic or polymeric vesicles that mimic biological cells and that allow cascade chemical or enzymatic reactions within their lumen. We hereby report on the preparation and study of liposomes in polymersomes (LiPs) systems. We discuss on the loading and coloading of lipidic nanovesicles made of 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (POPC), 1,2-dimyristoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DMPC), 1,2-dipentadecanoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (diC15-PC), or 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) inside the lumen of giant poly(butadiene)-b-poly(ethylene oxide) (PBut-b-PEO) polymersomes. These LiPs systems were characterized by confocal microscopy and UV–visible spectroscopy. We further demonstrate that we can achieve controlled sequential release of dyes from diC15-PC and DPPC liposomes at defined temperatures inside the giant PBut-b-PEO polymersomes. This controlled release could be used as a means to initiate cascade reactions on demand in confined microreactors.
