Abstract

The phenomena of aggregation and fusion of liposome membranes under the stimuli conditions (heat and pH) were shown to be triggered by the conformational change of the stimuli-responsive polymers and proteins. It is found that the percentage of liposome fusion and the liposome size under the specific stimuli condition were well corresponding with the capacity factor obtained from the peak shift of the elution profile on the immobilized liposome chromatography.
