Stimuli-Responsive Materials: Soft Nanotubes with a Hydrophobic Channel Hybridized with Au Nanoparticles: Photothermal Dispersion/Aggregation Control of C60 in Water (Adv. Funct. Mater. 13/2013)
Glycolipid-based soft nanotubes with a hydrophilic outer surface and hydrophobic nanochannel encapsulating C60 are reported by Naohiro Kameta and co-workers on page 1677. It is found that the photothermal effect of gold nanoparticles hybridized with the nanotube induces an unfolding of the tubular morphology and leads to compulsive release of C60 in bulk water.
