Colloidosomes are usually produced from a series of building blocks with different sizes ranging from several nanometers to micrometers or various shapes, such as particles, microrods, and quantum dots. Colloidosomes can possess a variety of characteristics in terms of photics, electrology, mechanical strength, and selective permeability, derived from their building blocks. However, poor mechanical stability and complicated synthesis processes have limited the applications of colloidosomes. Here, we report a new one-pot colloidal chemistry route to synthesize phenol formaldehyde resin (PFR), Ag@PFR, and Au@PFR colloidosomes with high yields. The method can be modified to synthesize different kinds of doped colloidosomes with different components, which will provide a new approach to design colloidosomes with different functions.
