The successful development of monodisperse MF nanoparticles from 200 to 900 nm was reported using a convenient surface erosion procedure. These MF particles permit the successful development of hollow polyelectrolyte nanocapsules by the LbL self-assembly technique. The procedure allows the accurate control of size, membrane composition and thickness of the nanocapsules.
