Abstract: In this talk I will discuss some of our recent contributions in the field of responsive polymer-stabilised emulsions. I will discuss a convenient strategy to prepare architecturally and compositionally controlled amphiphilic copolymers and how judicious control of monomer choice facilitates the direct formation of well-defined, responsive nanoparticles. The interfacial adsorption behaviour of these particles will be considered and the formation of stable oil-in-water droplets described. I will also discuss the assembly of a new class of soft material – engineered emulsions – based on stable functional droplets and a variety of advanced liquid-based materials that can be prepared from these materials. http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/people/j.weaver
