Zusammenfassung:In this work, we address two different structures whose sizes are in the nanoscopic and microscopic range, namely nanoparticles and polyelectrolyte polymer capsules respectively. Among a wide variety of their promising applications, some are discussed. Synthesis, characterization and surface modification of semiconductor CdSe/ZnS and metallic Au nanoparticles are presented. Au nanoparticles were synthesized directly in organic solutions. The second part of this work is focused on the investigation of the applications of polyelectrolyte capsules in cell biology.
