Intelligent Nanohydrogels

Nanohydrogels are hydrogel nanoparticles based on crosslinked polymeric networks perfect as delivery systems due to their relatively high encapsulation capacity, uniformity, tunable and customizable size, biocompatibility, stimuli responsiveness, stability and scalability. Nanohydrogels can be functionalized with active moieties (chemical groups, petides, targeting lingands,etc).

Biocompatible microgels and applications thereof
WO 2008/145612 A1

The biocompatible microgels comprises a polymeric network, said polymeric network comprising monomeric units interconnected with one another through a crosslinking agent, wherein said polymeric network can be obtained by polymerization in a dispersed medium of a biocompatible vinyl monomer and crosslinking agent. The micro gel may further comprise a biologically active agent. Said biocompatible micro gels can be used, among other applications, to transport and dose biologically active agents.

Cationic nanogels for biotechnological uses
WO 2011/113989 A1

The invention relates to a biocompatible cationic nanogel comprising a polymer network including polymer units interconnected by means of a cross-linking agent. According to the invention, the polymer network can be obtained by means of polymerisation in a dispersed medium of N-vinylcaprolactam and a cross-linking agent in the presence of a cationic initiator and a cationic or non-ionic emulsifier. The invention also relates to a method for producing said nanogels, as well as to the pharmaceutical compositions containing same.
