Fluid Interfaces and Interfacial Catalysis

Recently our group has demonstrated a potential application of stimuli-responsive Janus particles for interfacial catalysis. We demonstrated incorporation of catalytic nanoparticles in the polymer corona of Janus particles and possibility to stabilize/destabilize water-oil emulsions as well as to perform catalytic reactions in one of the phases.
