Drug delivery systems (DDSs) have been getting more and more attention in the field of cancer therapy with the development of nanotechnology. But remote and noninvasive controlled drug release for improving treatment efficacy and reducing side effects faces great challenge. We report a kind of “smart” nanocomposites (NCs) that is sensitive to the surrounding temperature by grafting a layer of thermosensitive polymer, poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (pNIPAm), on the surface of single Cu7S4… CONTINUE READING
