Sono-Assembly of Highly Biocompatible Polysaccharide Capsules for Hydrophobic Drug Delivery

Authors


Abstract

Cells like sugar. General synthesis and potential of intracellular hydrophobic drug delivery of single-component polysaccharide capsules are pursued. The capsules can be generally assembled through hydrogen bonding networks but show striking shell robustness. The evidenced cell internalization, stimuli-responsiveness to local pH changes and high biocompatibilities of the capsules specifically favor their potential intracellular drug delivery
