Phospholipids self-assemble in aqueous solution to spherical vesicles, so-called conventional liposomes. “Stealth” liposomes are polymer-coated lipid vesicles with a higher colloidal stability. Polymersomes are hollow vesicles that are generated by the self-assembly process of block copolymers. All systems can be adjusted in size from nanometers to micrometers, but are typically nanometer-sized objects.
