Abstract

The synthesis of colloidal dispersions using biologically active dispersing agents that exhibit stimuli-responsive characteristics lead to unique particle shapes and surface/interfacial morphologies developed during coalescence. This process enables the reparation of a wide range of particle shapes of unique composition and architecture. By tuning parameters such as concentration levels and chemical structure of phospholipids tailored properties could be achieved. Recent advances in film formation from non-spherical colloidal particles are discussed in the context of controlled stratification stimulated by thermal, ionic strength, and pH stimuli.
