Article : 5,849 Patent : 1,753 Products : 22

DEFINITIONS

Nanocapsules are submicroscopic colloidal drug carrier systems composed of an oily or an aqueous core surrounded by a thin polymer membrane

Reference : Nanotechnology and Engineered Nanomaterials - A Primer, W. Salamon, Patrick Courtney and Ian Shuttler, PerkinElmer, Inc. USA, 2010

A nanoparticle comprised of a polymer, lipid or other type of shell that enclosing its inner cavity or content. A nanocapsule is usually a hollow spherical particle made up of polymers or phospholipids (in this case it is called a liposome or a nanosome) containing a low-molecular substance inside

Reference : Encyclopaedia of nanoscience and nanotechnology

Hollow nanoparticle composed of a solid shell that surrounds a core-forming space available to entrap substances

Reference : IUPAC Recommendations

Nano-object with more than one chemically or structurally distinct wall layer enclosing a hollow or solid core, which is designed to carry analytical, therapeutic or image enhancing components

Reference : ISO/TS 80004-7:2011

h-Index of nanotechnology publications

This field displays the h-index count and is based on a list of publications ranked in descending order by the Times Cited count. The h-index is the number of the item/publication in the h rank of the mentioned ranking that has at least "h" citations. For example, an h-index of 20 means 20 items have 20 citations or more. This metric is useful because it discounts the disproportionate weight of highly cited papers or papers that have not yet been cited.
