Nanocapsules of organophosphorous hydrolase with enhanced enzyme activity and stability are prepared via in situ polymerization, providing a novel class of nanoparticles for the decontamination and detoxification of organophosphates such as chemical warfare agents and pesticides. Using the nanocapsules as building blocks, bioactive nanocomposites are also fabricated, enabling their use for organophosphate protection.
