Discovering the Parameters That Govern the Encapsulation of Drugs

Schematic figure of a micelle -- consisting of a hydrophilic shell (blue tails) and a hydrophobic core (red tails) -- encapsulating drug molecules (yellow). The drug molecules mostly gather at the core-shell interface (dashed-white line) of the micelle if the concentration of the drug is below the water solubility of the solvent, while if the concentration is above the solubility they gather in the core.
