Abstract: In this report, we employed surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerisation to graft thermo-responsive copolymers of oligo (ethylene glycol) methacrylates from the surface of diatom biosilica microcapsules. We demonstrate the application of the resulting composites for thermo-responsive drug delivery.
