A Novel Thermo-Induced Self-Bursting Microcapsule with Magnetic-Targeting Property

Authors


Abstract

original image

A novel thermo-induced self-bursting microcapsule with magnetic-targeting property is developed (see figure). The Fe3O4 nanoparticles-embedded PNIPAM shell enables magnetic-targeting and thermo-induced self-bursting of the microcapsules. Lipophilic chemicals dissolved in the oil core are completely released with the burst release of the encapsulated oil.
