Abstract

A microcapsule for drug delivery was successfully produced by utilizing the flow-through droplet-based supramolecular self-assembly in a crossed microchannel network. The PS-b- PMMA block copolymer synthesized atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) was initially formed as microdroplets and after the evaporation process it turned to spherical capsule by polymer self-assembly of the micro domains. The characteristics were studied using various analysis methods.
