Experimental data (red squares) are well described by a Fickian diffusion model (black squares) for a diffusivity of 5*10-11 cm2 s-1 in the microporous capsule wall. b) Encapsulation of the large dye molecule Rose Bengal. The experimental ratio of dye molecules inside and outside the capsules (red circles) remains constant over time, confirming effective encapsulation.

Description of the syntehsize process of the microspheres as shown in Fig. S5
More specifically, MnCO3 microparticles were firstly modified by citric acid, then alternatively assembled with PAH and PSS, and finally treated with EDTA. The resultant PAH/citrate-PAH/PSS capsules were then exposed to a solution containing NaOH, H3PO4, or HF, thus resulting in the rapid substitution of citrate ions to OH-, PO43- or F- ions, and the formation of PAH/OH-–PAH/PSS, PAH/PO43-–PAH/PSS or PAH/F-–PAH/PSS capsules. Next, the as-acquired capsules were treated with FeSO4 and Fe2(SO4)3 (OH--containing capsules), CaCl2 (PO43--containing capsules), or Y(NO3)3 (F-–containing capsules) solutions to deposit Fe3O4, hydroxyapatite or YF3 particles, respectively, inside the capsule wall. The inorganic component in the capsule wall prevented capsule collapse in the dry state, which are reminiscent of those of the original polyelectrolyte capsule in solution.

Description of the syntehsize process of the microspheres as shown in Fig. S13
The mesoporous silica capsules were firstly fabricated through conducting the sol-gel reaction of tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) on a sacrificial Fe3O4 template. Then, gadolinium oxide nanoparticles doped with europium ions (Gd2O3:Eu3+, luminescent nanoparticles) were incorporated into the lumen to form rattle-type mesoporous silica capsules via an incipientwetness impregnation method. Finally, the rattle-type capsules serve as a nanoreactor for filling temperature-responsive hydrogel via photoinduced polymerization to form the multifunctional hybrid microspheres.
