A novel approach for a temperature-sensitive stabilization of water-in-water (W/W) emulsions is described. Specifically, we leveraged the thermal induced conformation change of tailored thermoresponsive block copolymers to reversibly stabilize and destabilize water–water interfaces. In addition, we investigated our approach to reversibly tune the reaction kinetics of enzymes compartmentalized within aqueous two-phase systems.
