Study 1: Researchers discuss the modulation of surface charge, particle size, and morphological properties of chitosan-TPP nanoparticles intended for gene delivery in a recent issue of Colloids and Surfaces B - Biointerfaces.
"This work investigates the polyanion-initiated gelation process in fabricating chitosan-TPP (tripolyphosphate) nanoparticles in the size range of 100-250 nm intended to be used as carriers for the delivery of gene or protein macromolecules. It demonstrates that ionic gelation of cationic chitosan molecules offers a flexible and...
