The preparation and characterisation of poly(butyl-2-cyanoacrylate) nanoparticles
Douglas, Stephen John (1985) The preparation and characterisation of poly(butyl-2-cyanoacrylate) nanoparticles. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Poly (butyl 2-cyanoacrylate) nanoparticles have been prepared with a range of particle sizes by varying the nature and concentration of stabiliser added to the polymerisation medium. Particle size analysis was performed by photon correlation spectroscopy. The range of diameters produced using dextran stabilisers was found to be approximately 100 to 800nm. This could be extended to 3ym using j3 -cyclodextrin and to 20nm using polysorbate 20. The results infer that the nanoparticles are sterically stabilised.
