Abstract

Hollow spherical nanoparticles with ordered mesoporous silica shells were fabricated by evaporation-induced self-assembly using (NH(4))(2)SO(4) and cetyltrimethyl ammonium bromide (CTAB) as templates. The model drug, L-methionine, was encapsulated within the spherical void at high loadings by repeated crystallization.
