Modular Approach for the Design of Smart Polymeric Nanocapsules

Banu Iyisan et al. Macromol Rapid Commun. .

Abstract

The formation of nanocapsules from a modular perspective for self-assembled nanocapsules, so-called polymersomes, and nanocapsules with a covalently formed shell are discussed in this review. It is shown that there are common and comparable ways for the selective and controlled release of payloads for stimuli-responsive systems and nanocapsule functionalization in order to use them for drug delivery and diagnostic applications.

Keywords: miniemulsion; nanocapsules; polymersomes; self-assembly.
