Polystyrene(40)-b-poly(isocyanoalanine(2-thiophen-3-yl-ethyl)amide)(50) (PS-PIAT) polymersomes have the unique property of being sufficiently porous to allow diffusion of small (organic) substrates while retaining large biomolecules such as enzymes inside. Herein we report on the encapsulation and protection of glucose oxidase (GOx) and horse radish peroxidase (HRP) in PS-PIAT polymersomes and the successful employment of these functionalised nanoreactors in a cascade reaction. The demonstrated… CONTINUE READING
