Abstract

Macroscopically long straight carbon nanopores produced by the nanofiber template method are used to polymerize sufficiently monodisperse thermoresponsive poly(N-isopropyl acrylamide) nanoparticles of the order of 400 nm diameter at the rate of 107 particles/s. During their formation, the nanoparticles were loaded with fluorescent dye Rhodamine 6G. The dye release kinetics from the nanoparticles was studied experimentally and theoretically under the conditions of thermal stimulation, and thermoresponsive release was demonstrated.
