Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

A dendrimer–nanoparticle hybrid scaffold based on robust dithiocarbamate formation provides a controlled drug delivery system. These composite films are non-toxic and can incorporate a variety of guests, providing sustained drug release over multiple uses. The system is highly modular: the release process can be easily tuned by altering the dendrimer generation and the size of the AuNPs, generating a versatile delivery system.
