Light relief! Mesoporous silica materials equipped with photoresponsive cucurbituril-pseudorotaxane nanovalves operate in biological media to trap cargo molecules within nanopores, but undergo controlled release when irradiated with light of a suitable wavelength (see figure). Significantly, a “ladder”-release pattern is obtained to balance maximal therapeutic efficacy and minimal dose frequency in the development of “pulsed” drug therapy.
