Abstract :

The article reports the preparation of biocompatible and biodegradable poly(-caprolactone) 1D (cylindrical) and 2D (platelet) micelles in water and alcoholic solvents via crystallization-driven self-assembly. Using epitaxial growth in an alcoholic solvent, exquisite control over the dimensions and dispersity of these nanostructures are shown. MC3T3 and A549 cells are encapsulated, demonstrating high viability in the novel hydrogel materials.
