Smart nanocarriers for pH-triggered targeting and release of hydrophobic drugs.
The use of hybrid pH-sensitive micelles based mainly on the (PEO)(129)(P2VP)(43)(PCL)(17) ABC miktoarm star copolymer as potential triggered drug delivery systems was investigated. Co-micellizationExpand

pH-responsive flower-type micelles formed by a biotinylated poly(2-vinylpyridine)-block-poly(ethylene-oxide)-block-poly(ε-caprolactone) triblock copolymer
In the present work, a method is proposed to assemble pH-responsive, flower-like micelles that can expose a targeting unit at their periphery upon a decrease in pH. The micelles are composed of aExpand
