49_26b/2010Inside Cover: Facile, Template-Free Synthesis of Stimuli-Responsive Polymer Nanocapsules for Targeted Drug Delivery (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 26/2010)

Open Sesame! A template-free synthetic approach to stimuli-responsive polymer nanocapsules that are potentially useful for targeted drug delivery has been developed. In their Communication on p. 4405 ff., K. Kim and co-workers show that reductively labile polymer nanocapsules composed of CB[6] and disulfide bridges allow not only facile, noncovalent surface modification for targeted delivery but also the release of encapsulated cargo in response to a predefined redox stimulus in an intracellular environment.
