Affinity-mediated capture and release of amphiphilic copolymers for controlling antimicrobial activity

Author affiliations

Abstract

Capture and release of amphiphilic copolymers by a nano-sized polysaccharide gel (nanogel) was controlled by altering the hydrophobic binding affinity between the copolymer chains and nanogel. The antimicrobial activity of captured copolymer chains was suppressed, and regained upon release from the nanogel.
