The best of both worlds: A novel amphiphilic homopolymer synthesized from a monomer consisting of a hydrophobic group (see picture, red) and a hydrophilic moiety (green) self-assembles in aqueous solution. The resulting micelles have a multi-core/shell structure and exhibit smart redox-responsive properties, thus providing a favorable drug delivery platform for cancer therapy.
