Stimulus-responsive polymeric micelles for the light-triggered release of drugs.


Ethyl cellulose macroinitiator was firstly synthesized by direct acylation of ethyl cellulose with 2-bromopropionyl bromide in a room temperature. And a light-responsive triblock copolymer of ethyl cellulose-g-poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate)-g-poly(spiropyran ether methacrylate) (EC-g-PHEMA-g-PSPMA) was prepared by atom transfer radial polymerization.
