Polyelectrolyte layer-by-layer (LbL) nanofilms are interesting polymeric structures, built by alternating adsorption of positively and negatively charged polyelectrolytes. They consist of multilayer sheets with nanometric overall thickness, and they can be used as supports and surface coatings for in vitro...
