Small molecules with multiple negative charges template the formation of vesicular aggregates by stabilizing multivalent interactions with the cationic head group of the surfactants. An enzyme slowly cleaves the molecules leading to a loss of these interactions and, consequently, spontaneous dissociation of the aggregates takes place. The lifetime of the aggregates is determined by the stability of the molecules against enzymatic cleavage. More information can be found in the Full Paper by L. J. Prins et al. (DOI: 10.1002/chem.201701533).
