The preparation of biocompatible nanocarriers that have potential applications in the cosmetic and health industries is highly desired. The self-assembly of amphiphilic block copolymers displaying biosourced polysaccharides at the surface is one of the most promising approaches. In the continuity of our works related to the preparation of "hybrid" amphiphilic oligosaccharide-based block copolymers, we present here the design of a new generation of self-assembled nanoparticles composed entirely… CONTINUE READING
