Formulation process for formation of NALG and NALG-DOX. a Schematic representation of inverse micelle synthesis process. Aqueous alginate chains are crosslinked in organic bath (top), extracted to an aqueous phase (bottom left), then filtered for purification (bottom right). b Molecular interaction of Ca2+ crosslinking, leading to formed NALG. c Photograph of synthesis at various points, from left to right, emulsion before CaCl2 addition, emulsion after CaCl2 addition, and separation upon addition of water
