Microfluidic assisted self-assembly of chitosan based nanoparticles as drug delivery agents

Abstract

We present a microfluidic platform for the synthesis of monodisperse chitosan based nanoparticles via self-assembly at physiological pH. The resultant nanoparticles are shown to encapsulate hydrophobic anticancer drugs while providing a sustainable release profile with high tunability.
