Glyconanocapsules with a biocompatible oily core have been successfully prepared by copper­(I)-catalyzed azide–alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC) interfacial step growth polymerization between 6,6′-diazido-6,6′-dideoxysucrose and bis­(propargyloxy)­butane in oil-in-water miniemulsion conditions. Optimization of the interfacial polymerization process in dispersed medium afforded the rapid and reproducible preparation of stable monodispersed glyconanocapsules having a diameter around 200 nm.
