Hollow polymer-based particles are useful for the encapsulation, protection and release of active compounds. Adding a metal-organic coordination framework shell to nanocontainers is an attractive goal because it should help control their stability and permeability while yielding new properties and functions. We have discovered that polymer capsules with a Prussian blue analogue inner-shell can be synthesized by emulsion-induced assembly of a metal-containing amphiphilic block ionomer. The capsules are selectively permeable, and were used as nanocontainers to encapsulate a model compound. Further, these nanomaterials are tunable in size and organize into close-packed arrays in the solid state. Potential applications for these materials include the encapsulation and nanopatterning of pharmaceutical, biological and catalytic compounds.
