Abstract Sensitive nanohydrogels based on micellar aggregates from amphiphilic block copolymers were synthesized by means of electron beam irradiation. The crosslinked shell consists of temperature sensitive [ N -isopropylacrylamide (NIPAAm)] and pH sensitive [5-methacryloyloxy pentatonic acid (5MPA) or 4-methacryloyloxy benzoic acid (4MBA)] units, while the core is a hydrophobic network that may work as a reservoir for drugs. The effect of the irradiation dose and the polymer concentration… CONTINUE READING
