Controllable exploding microcapsules as drug carriers

Author affiliations

Abstract

Controllable exploding polyelectrolyte microcapsules were developed by layer-by-layer assembly of poly(allylamine hydrochloride) (PAH) and poly(sodium 4-styrenesulfonate) (PSS) on a dextran microgel core containing a cleavable disulfide bond fabricated via click chemistry. The microcapsules can explode upon the injection of DTT with an explosive release of the drug.
