A novel intelligent “active defense” system that can specially respond to cancerous tissues and explosively release drugs is designed and demonstrated. This “active defense” system consists of a biodegradable dextran microgel core cross-linked by Schiff's base and a surrounding layer formed through layer by layer (LbL) assembly. It is triggered by the tumor environment to act as an exploding microcapsule.
