We intended to combine the liposomal preparation and the layer-by-layer deposition to prepare a nanosized capsule. Chitosan (CHI) was deposited to form the cationic polymeric layer onto a negatively charged liposomal surface and further deposition was carried out using anionic polymers dextran sulfate (DXS) or deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). zeta-Potentials of nanocapsules changed between positive and negative charges at each deposition. FE-TEM revealed that the liposome remained a spherical shape… CONTINUE READING
