Abstract

Multiple water-in-oil-in-water (W/O/W) emulsions are promising materials in designing carriers of hydrophilic molecules or drug delivery systems, provided stability issues are solved and biocompatible chemicals can be used. In this work, we designed a biocompatible amphiphilic copolymer, poly(dimethylsiloxane)-b-poly(2-(dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate) (PDMS-b-PDMAE-MA), that can stabilize emulsions made with various biocompatible oils. The hydrophilic/hydrophobic properties of the copolymer can be adjusted using both pH and ionic strength stimuli. Consequently, the making of O/W (oil in water), W/O (water in oil), and W/O/W emulsions can be achieved by sweeping the pH and ionic strength. Of importance, W/O/W emulsions are formulated over a large pH and ionic strength domain in a one-step emulsification process via transitional phase inversion and are stable for several months. Cryo-TEM and interfacial tension studies show that the formation of these W/O/W emulsions is likely to be correlated to the interfacial film curvature and microemulsion morphology.
