Scientists creat tiniest uniform, precisely shaped organic nanoparticles for delivering organic materials into the human body
June 21, 2005
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill chemists have developed a method of creating the world’s tiniest manufactured particles — less than 100 nanometers — for delivering drugs and other organic materials into the human body.
Until now, most current techniques for particle formation were incompatible with organic materials, according to Dr. Joseph M. DeSimone, professor of chemistry and chemical engineering at UNC and N.C. State University.
