Dopamine NPs SE

Nanoparticles with a polydopamine shell and an empty core designed for drug delivery. Melanin is a natural pigment with diverse roles in various organisms. Polydopamine NPs are a synthetic mimic of naturally occurring melanin and are studied for tissue engineering, bioimaging, biosensing, catalysis and drug delivery applications. Pores can be introduced into this material by using templating agents significantly increasing its loading capacity (top: STEM BF and DF4 images, below: SE image of the same material in UC/BD mode, uncoated).
