Linear–dendritic biodegradable block copolymers: from synthesis to application in bionanotechnology

Author affiliations

Abstract

Besides biodegradability and biocompatibility, linear–dendritic biodegradable block copolymers present unique hierarchical self-assembly and multivalent characteristics, making them appealing in stimuli-responsive nanomedicine and hydrogel applications. This minireview highlights the recent progress on linear–dendritic biodegradable block copolymers synthesized via click chemistry, the DNA–/protein–dendritic biohybrids, and their prospects in bionanotechnology.
