Water-filled polymer tubes

Abstract:
Polymer nanotubes that can be loaded with water-soluble substances may find applications in drug delivery and as highly specific templates for inorganic synthesis, suggest chemists at the University of Basel, in Switzerland, who prepared the materials. “We developed a new, efficient, and easy method for the preparation of chemically and mechanically stable water-filled tubes with diameters of about 50 nm and lengths up to several tens of micrometers,” chemistry professor Wolfgang P. Meier says.
