Vesicles made completely from diblock copolymers-polymersomes-can be stably prepared by a wide range of techniques common to liposomes. Processes such as film rehydration, sonication, and extrusion can generate many-micron giants as well as monodisperse, 100 nm vesicles of PEO-PEE (polyethylenoxide - polyethylethylene) or PEO-PBD (polyethylenoxide - polybutadiene). Results are presented that potentiate a broad new class of technologically useful, polymerbased vesicles.
