Vielschichtig und lichtempfänglich: Die schichtweise selbstorganisierte Abscheidung eines dendritischen Porphyrins (rot) und von Poly(allylamin-hydrochlorid) (blau) auf Polystyrolnanopartikeln und anschließendes Entfernen des Polystyrolkerns führen zu multifunktionellen hohlen Nanokapseln, die sowohl mit Tumortherapeutika beladen als auch in der photodynamischen Therapie verwendet werden können.
