Paper Abstract

Polyelectrolyte microcapsules are one of the most successful developments in the direction of target drug delivery. Nevertheless, to encapsulate low molecular weight compounds and to deliver the targeted drugs it is necessary to modify the surface of the microcapsules. Silica nanostructures obtained as result of hydrolysis of (3-Aminopropyl)- triethoxysilane (APTES) were used for the modification of the microcapsules. This material shows no toxic effect on cells and is capable of biodegradation. Amino-groups in the structure of APTES make it possible for further direct bioconjugation.
