A series of amphiphilic diblock copolypeptides (ADCs), 5-(4-aminophenyl)-10,15,20-triphenyl-porphyrin (APP) conjugated poly(l-leucine)-block-polylysine (APP-LnKm) with different molar ratios of L-leucine unit and lysine unit were designed and synthesized. It was found that the micellar structure was formed by the self-assembly of the ADCs. APP-L109K186 micelles exhibited no significant dark cytotoxicity and high photodynamic therapy efficacy against HepG2 and HeLa cells, which indicated APP-L109K186 micelles could be a novel carrier for cancer therapy.
