a Schematic showing the process of transferring the double emulsions into a PEG-rich bath and images showing the process of releasing the inner core droplets from the double emulsions. Scale bar: 200 μm. b Image of the formed monodisperse ATPS droplets using the oil-mediated method. Scale bar: 100 μm. c Morphology of the double emulsion during oil evaporation at surfactant concentrations of 0.01 and 1%. Scale bar: 200 μm. d The chart showing the percentages of the droplets that are not coalesced and the droplets that are successfully released at different surfactant concentrations ranging from 0.005 to 1%
