A new class of polylactone was successfully synthesized and utilized for the encapsulation and stabilization of gold nanoparticles. Core/shell nanoparticle architecture, in which a layer of this polymer surrounds the nanoparticle core have been investigated both as a means to improve the stability and surface chemistry and as a way of accessing unique physical properties that are not possible from one nano-material alone. Given the fact that only few systems has so far been developed for the encapsulation of nanoparticles, our success in using a new biodegradable biopolymer with inbuilt functionality reveals the robustness of this work. The biodegradability of this polylactone was evaluated using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The morphology and stability of these gold-polymer hybrids were evaluated by using the transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and UV-VIS spectroscopy.
