Polymer vesicles have a great potential in the biomedical field, some of the many promising applications are their proposed use in drug delivery, gene therapy, magnetic resonance imaging, theranostic and cell mimicking. Recently potential applications have been identified in other fields, including use as nano-reactors, biosensors, catalysis, water remediation, and even construction materials, which might bring significant changes among various industries. The careful design of the functional building blocks of polymer vesicles they can be tailored to respond to specific stimuli such as pH, temperature, oxidation/reduction, electrical and magnetic fields and ultrasound. This specification allows them to be adaptable for a wide range of potential applications. Polymer Vesicles provides a comprehensive insight into this field, including coverage of structure, formation mechanism, rational design and preparation, and potential applications in biomedicine and other fields. This book will provide researcher in polymer chemistry, materials science and biochemistry with a thorough understanding of this rapidly developing field.
