Synthesis of thermo-sensitive CS-g-PNIPAM/CMC complex nanoparticles for controlled release of 5-FU.


In this paper, self-assembled thermo-sensitive polyelectrolyte complex nanoparticles formed from chitosan-graft-poly(N-isopropylacrylamide)/carboxymethyl cellulose (CS-g-PNIPAM/CMC) were prepared for entrapment and release of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU). The morphology and size of the nanoparticles were observed by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and… (More)
