Micelles for delivery of nitric oxide

Embodiments include a vehicle for delivery of nitric oxide comprising: a collection of micelles having an internal micelle core that comprises a polymer with N-diazeniumdiolate comprising NO complexed with secondary amines of the polymer. Embodiments include a method of making a nitric oxide vehicle comprising dissolving a polymer that comprises secondary amines in an aqueous solution and combining the polymer with nitric oxide in the solution to form a N-diazeniumdiolate comprising the nitric oxide complexed with the secondary amines, with the formation of the N-diazeniumdiolate causing the polymer to be at least partially insoluble in the solution and to form a collection of micelles that have an internal core that comprises N-diazeniumdiolate.
