Self-folding all-polymer thermoresponsive microcapsules

Author affiliations

Abstract

We design partially biodegradable thermoresponsive self-folding capsules capable of controlled capture and release of cells. The proof of principle is demonstrated on the example of star-like patterned polycaprolactone-poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) bilayers, which reversibly encapsulate/release yeast cells in response to a temperature signal.
