I. Background: The choice of polyanion can greatly influence the size of the assembled NPs, in vivo stability, and cytotoxic effects. We therefore selected three of the most popular polyanions to form complexes with chitosan.
II. Aims: To investigate the effect of polyelectrolytes on the formation and physicochemical properties of chitosan.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
