Smart photothermal-triggered bilayer phase transition in AuNPs-liposomes to release drug.

Novel thermosensitive liposomes with embedded Au nanoparticles (AuNPs) in the liposome bilayer were prepared by a combination method of film build and supercritical CO(2) incubation. These AuNPs-liposomes possess AuNPs that are embedded in the bilayer and a drug that is encapsulated in the central aqueous compartment. The AuNPs in the liposomes can strongly… (More)
