Preparation of hollow spheres has attracted great interest in recent years, because of their unique properties, such as low density, large surface area and great light scattering ability. Hollow spheres have been demonstrated to be useful in many fields, e.g. opacifying agents and white pigments for ink fillers and paper coatings, additives for coatings, plastics and rubbers, drug delivery or controlled release systems and catalyst carriers, etc. [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]. Several strategies have been developed to prepare polymeric and inorganic hollow particles, such as osmotic swelling, water-in-oil-in-water emulsion polymerization, emulsion/phase separation procedures, self-assembly processes, spray-drying and template-synthesis methods associated with core sacrifice techniques [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13].

Recently, it was found that hollow particles could be readily fabricated from spontaneous vesicles and liposomes formed by amphiphilic bilayers, such as mixtures of...
