Polyelectrolyte microcapsules (PEMCs) have been prepared by coating red blood cells with the polyelectrolytes poly(styrenesulfonate), poly(allylamine hydrochloride), and dextran sulfate applying the layer-by-layer technique with subsequent dissolution of the core. The capsule permeability for human serum albumin (HSA) was studied as a function of the ionic strength and pH by means of confocal microscopy. PEMCs produced with dextran sulfate and poly(allylamine hydrochloride) show a significant… CONTINUE READING
