From stable droplets to functional nanocapsules


Landfester, Katharina


Physikalische Chemie der Polymere (Prof. Dr. Katharina Landfester)

By using a modular approach the miniemulsion process allows for the formation of complex functionalized polymer nanoparticles and the encapsulation of solid or liquid, inorganic or organic, hydrophobic or hydrophilic materials in a polymer shell. Here, different materials from organic and inorganic pigments, magnetite or other solid materials to hydrophilic or hydrophobic liquids like perfumes, vitamins, drugs, or photoinitiators can be encapsulated and deliberated in a well-defined manner. The functionalization of the nanoparticles can be easily controlled.
