Multicompartmentalized polymersomes are formed using block co-polymers PMOXA–PDMS–PMOXA and PS-PIAT, and are subsequently proven to be capable of selective encapsulation of biomacromolecules. This architecture mimics the compartmentalization found in cells and may serve as a simple, albeit robust, model system.
