One-pot synthesis of biopolymeric hollow nanospheres by photocrosslinking.

Abstract

Biopolymeric hollow nanospheres with stabilized structure have been prepared by self-assembly of amphiphatic photocrosslinkable carboxymethyl chitosans in a water medium into hollow nanocapsules and subsequent in situ photo-crosslinking of the photoreactive functional groups in the shells of the nanocapsules.
