Dissipative particle dynamics studies of doxorubicin-loaded micelles assembled from four-arm star triblock polymers 4AS-PCL-b-PDEAEMA-b-PPEGMA and their pH-release mechanism.


Dissipative particle dynamics (DPD) simulation was applied to investigate the microstructures of the micelles self-assembled from pH-sensitive four-arm star triblock poly(ε-caprolactone)-b-poly(2-(diethylamino)ethyl methacrylate)-b-poly(poly(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate) (4AS-PCL-b-PDEAEMA-b-PPEGMA). In the optimized system, the micelles have… (More)
