Abstract

Janus-like emulsions stabilized by OH- and polydopamine (PDA) particles were realized. The OH- and particle occupied areas on emulsion droplet surfaces are spatially separated. Via controlling the pH and ionic strength, the coalescence of Janus-like emulsion droplets could be manipulated.
