Nanoparticles: A very versatile nanocapsule

Darrell W. Kuykendall, Steven C. Zimmerman

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


Numerous copies of a pumpkin-shaped molecule can be linked together to form a nanocapsule shell that can trap compounds inside. The outer surface of this capsule can be decorated with other species by plugging them into the cavities of the hollowed-out pumpkins.
