Ascorbic acid-mediated reductive disassembly of Fe3+-tannic acid shells in degradable single-cell nanoencapsulation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Rapid degradation of Fe3+-tannic acid films is achieved under mild conditions via ascorbic acid-mediated Fe3+ reduction, which overcomes the problems in the disassembly of a metal–organic complex including slow reaction rates and reaction incompatibility with living cells. The strategy of reductive disassembly is applied to degradable single-cell nanoencapsulation, providing an advanced tool for tightly controlling and manipulating the cell–material interface.
