The packing symmetry of the solvent spread monolayer of the ion-pair amphiphiles at the air-water interface depends on the stoichiometry and the magnitude of the charged head groups and the symmetry and the dissymmetry in the precursors' hydrophobic spear (the alkyl chain).
Polymersomes are artificial vesicles which enclose a central aqueous cavity, composed of self-assembly of block copolymer amphiphiles. They have a hydrophilic inner core and lipophilic bilayer, so they can be used for both lipophilic and hydrophilic drugs and hydrophobic core provides a protein-affable environment [118].
