Nanoprecipitation is applied for the first time as a general concept for manufacturing nanoparticles of versatile hydrophobic polymer classes. As a result, polymer molecules self-assemble into nanospheres or irregularly shaped nanoparticles during the transition from the dissolved state to the solid state while using different solvents and methods for the conversion. © 2009 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
