Abstract

Soft interfaces, formed at the boundary between immiscible fluids, gels and membranes, are ubiquitous to many contexts of fundamental science and technology, from biology to food, from oil to nanomedicine. Most often, the properties of real-life interfaces are highly dependent on the presence and nature of nanoscopic interfacial agents. Examples include amphiphilic proteins that impart functionality to biological and biomimetic membranes and surfactants that enable the stabilisation of complex multi-phase and multi-compartment systems.
