Chemistry and Pharmacology
Shell-crosslinked knedels are nanometer-sized (5-200 nm diameters), amphiphilic core-shell spheres that are prepared by the self-assembly of amphiphilic block copolymers into polymer micelles, followed by crosslinking of side chain functionalities along the block composing the shell of the polymer micelles. Such structures resemble dendrimers in the basic structural components, and have the advantages of a rapid synthetic approach and the production of larger and broader size ranges.
