Biocompatible Polymer Nanoparticles for Intra-cellular Applications
Keywords:Cellular uptake, Delivery, In vitro catalysis, In vitro sensing, Microspheres
AbstractPolymeric styrene microspheres have a great potential at the interface of chemistry and biology. The progress of the synthetic development of multifunctional microspheres and their use as delivery agents of different biomolecules into cells is discussed. Their multifunctional properties open a wide range of applications from intracellular real-time sensors, to the use of microspheres as catalysts performing exogenous chemistry within cells.
