Freeze-drying of polymeric nanoparticles with projection coronas results in the successful formation of three-dimensional microconstructs with various morphologies, including hollow microspheres (see Figure), without a solid or colloidal template. The microconstructs have sufficient mechanical strength to redisperse successfully in water without collapsing, while they break into nanoparticles following successive freeze–thawing cycles.
