Self-Assembled Titania Micelles for Drug Delivery and Bio-Control Applications

Seisenbaeva Gulaim, Kessler Vadim, Håkansson Peder Sebastian, Unell Maria


The modification of titanium alkoxides with hydrophylic and easily protonated ligands proposed in this work permits preparation of highly biocompatible and photochemically inactive titania sols and gels, capable of encapsulating living microorganisms and pharmaceuticals with the release mechanism controllable in a chemical and possibly even biochemical way via addition of chelating carboxylate ligands in solutions buffered at neutral pH
