Curcumin-encapsulated polyester nanoparticles (Cur-polyester NPs) of approximately 100 nm diameter with a negatively charged surface were prepared using a one-step nanoprecipitation method. The Cur-polyester NPs were prepared using polylactic acid, poly(D,L-lactic-co-glycolic acid) and poly(ϵ-caprolactone) without any emulsifier or surfactant. The encapsulation of curcumin in these polyester NPs greatly suppresses curcumin degradation in the aqueous environment due to its segregation from water… Expand
