The development of a smart microencapsulation system programmed to actively respond to environmental stimuli is gaining increasing importance compared to the traditional forms of drug administration. In this study, we introduce two new concepts of the drug delivery system, based on the light and pH-sensitive liquid crystal (LC) microspheres. The proposed system represents an emulsion formed by the immiscibility between the LC micro-spheres and a water environment.

Abstract

The development of a smart microencapsulation system programmed to actively respond to environmental stimuli is gaining increasing importance compared to the traditional forms of drug administration. In this study, we introduce two new concepts of the drug delivery system, based on the light and pH-sensitive liquid crystal (LC) microspheres. The proposed system represents an emulsion formed by the immiscibility between the LC micro-spheres and a water environment.
