Graf, N; Albertini, F; Petit, T; Reimhult, E; Vörös, J; Zambelli, T (2011). Electrochemically stimulated release from liposomes embedded in a polyelectrolyte multilayer. Advanced Functional Materials, 21(9):1666-1672.

Full text not available from this repository.


Triggered release of an entrapped dye from vesicles embedded in a polyelectrolyte multilayer (PEM), as a consequence of the electrochemically induced local pH change in the vicinity of the electrode, is reported. The PEM was deposited on an indium tin oxide (ITO) electrode wherein lipid vesicles filled with a fluorescent dye were embedded. The use of vesicles with a strong negative charge and the polyelectrolyte species of the PEM matrix with a polycation as topmost layer enabled the generation of a stable layer of liposomes in the PEM.
