Bioinspired colloidal systems vialayer-by-layer assembly

Abstract

This paper provides an overview of our recent work in the area of bioinspired colloidal particles. We highlight how modifying the basic polyelectrolyte multilayer shell with materials such as light-absorbing gold nanoparticles, lipid bilayer membranes, and targeting ligands can functionalize colloids prepared via the layer-by-layer assembly technique. These nanoengineered colloids are expected to show promise in areas ranging from drug and gene delivery to cell membrane modeling.
