PGA-dopamine conjugates (PGA ) were synthesized and assembled onto silica particles to yield biodegradable capsules with tunable degradation properties. Increasing the dopamine content results in thicker films with a concomitant reduction in the degradation kinetics. These tailored capsules are expected to find application in diverse areas, including drug and gene delivery. © 2011 American Chemical Society. PDA
