Micelles based on amphiphilic PCL-PEO triblock and star-shaped diblock copolymers: Potential in drug delivery applications.

In this work, the potential in drug nanodelivery of micelles made from poly(epsilon-caprolactone) (PCL) and poly (ethyleneoxide) (PEO) copolymers with triblock and star-diblock architectures was explored. Linear and 4-arm star-shaped PCL macromers with two or four --OH end groups were prepared by ring-opening polymerization of CL and condensed with alpha… CONTINUE READING
