Striving for advanced autonomous hydrogel materials with fully programmable, self-regulated life cycles, we combine two enzymes with an antagonistic pH-modulating effect in a feedback-controlled biocatalytic reaction network (BRN) and cou

(2017) Highly asymmetric block copolymers self-assemble into microparticles with inverse morphologies far beyond the crew-cut regime. Those enclose highly ordered channel systems with simple cubic, double diamond, and hexagonally packed hollow hoop symmetry. Their extensive interface and confinement inspires scenarios for storage of cargo, templating and chemical reactions.
