Abstract

We have synthesize hollow nanoparticles by a two-step process: a particle that acts as a template is coated with amorphous hydrogenated carbon in a low pressure plasma. The core particle is then dissolved to produce a hollow nanoshell. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) images depict the thickness and the uniformity of the adherent polymer coatings. In order to determine the permeability of the shell, coated KCl particles are dissolved in water and the conductivity of the solution is measured as a function of time. These nanoshells exhibit a delayed release response which can be controlled via the deposition time of the film.
