Abstract

The development of a novel technique to fabricate the spherical microcapsule encapsulating fluorescent nanoparticles is presented. The water droplets including the nanoparticles are formed in the organic polymer solution suspended with the well-defined amphiphilic copolymers. By utilizing the self-assembly of polymers on the surface of droplets, the polymer microcapsules as containers of nanoparticles are fabricated. The encapsulation performance of fluorescent nanoparticles is characterized by using TEM image analysis and a fluorescent confocal laser microscope.
