Synthesis of cross-linked chitosan-based nanohydrogels in inverse miniemulsion.


Cross-linked chitosan (CS) nanohydrogels were successfully prepared via cross-linking CS nanodroplets in inverse miniemulsions. The cross-linker was transferred to the CS nanodroplets via the evaporation from its aqueous solution and diffusion through the continuous phase. The formation of cross-linked CS nanohydrogels was confirmed by the morphological… (More)
