Abstract

Hypothesis: Lactose (LAC) is a primary carbohydrate and energy source of milk has received intensive attention due to its' unique functional and nutritional properties. Many biological beneficences of LAC make it an appealing molecule to seek for designing functional interfaces. Therefore, crosslinked poly(lactose) (p(LAC)) microgel from lactose disaccharides for potential biomedical applications was pursued as biocolloids for the first time.
