UoL will contribute to the project from the Department of Chemistry, group of Prof. Dr. Dmitry Shchukin. The expertise of the group of Prof. Shchukin is the layer-by-layer assembly of polyelectrolytes, encapsulation of active materials, and investigation of the release characteristics and modification of the container shell to adjust desired permeability characteristics and make the containers sensitive to the pH-changes of the environment, mechanic force, and presence of the gases in the local environment. Particular experience includes the fabrication of polymer-based containers with nonaqueous interior employing ultrasonic emulsification technique and incorporation of the nanocontainers loaded with active sensors into coatings and bulk polymer materials.
