Abstract

We demonstrate the full kinetic pathways of self-assembly of polymeric amphiphiles into a rich variety of complex vesicles by large-scale computer simulations based on dynamic self-consistent-field theory. The vesicular nanostructure can be tailored by both kinetic and thermodynamic factors. © 2005 American Chemical Society.
