Core cross-linked reverse polymeric micelles (CCL-RMs) were prepared by an original biphasic approach and their properties compared to their unmodified analogs. The cross-linking reaction did not affect the micelles' sphericity and aggregation number, but it reduced their solvodynamic diameter. Furthermore, while solubilization of model polar dyes in hydrophobic organic media was not markedly affected, this modification allowed for enhanced retention of the encapsulated cargo.
