Polyoxometalates (POMs) are often used to functionalize surfaces with photochromic or electroactive compounds. Among the common deposition methods, besides the Langmuir-Blodgett deposition, the layer-by-layer (LBL) deposition method has become more and more popular due to its facility and versatilit

In this study, we developed a dual ligand functionalized pluronic-based nanocarrier (NC) for oral delivery of insulin. Chitosan and zonula occludins toxin (ZOT)-derived, tight junction opening peptide were conjugated to NC to increase the permeability of loaded insulin across the small intestine thr
