Epub 2015 Sep 10.Straightforward organization of platinum nanoparticles (PtNPs) onto a macroscopic and robust material is described. PtNPs are in situ produced and stabilized by a dendritic amphiphile, where the latter consists of a hyperbranched polyethylenimine (PEI) as core and poly(styrene-co-2-ethylhexyl acrylate (P(St-EHA)) as shell. The resulting Pt@PEI@P(St-EHA), upon mixing with biphasic water and oil (a mixture of EHA and a dimethacrylate cross-linker in toluene), can self-assemble along the water/oil (W/O) interface and result in a stable emulsion.
