Abstract

We here provide detailed insight in self-assembled complex coacervate systems exploiting gold nanoparticles for cryoTEM contrast. Nanoparticle-containing dendrimicelles are formed from fifth-generation dendrimer-encapsulated nanoparticles (DENs) and dendrimer-stabilized nanoparticles (DSNs). The complex coacervate structures self-organize in biconcave thin water layers into size-sorted monolayer superstructures. The embedded nanoparticles are a straightforward tool to visualize dendrimicelles and determine the aggregation number and polydispersity. The superstructure shows extreme size-sorting patterns which, contrary to related systems with higher generation dendrimers, consists not only of dendrimicelles but also much bigger complex coacervate nanoassemblies, such as vesicles.
