By means of computer simulation, we have investigated self-organization of a single macromolecule being amphiphilic on the level of an individual monomer unit. It was demonstrated first, that in selective solvent such macromolecules are able to form spontaneously spherical vesicle-like globules having empty cavity in their center and dense shell on their surface.
