Biocompatible, hyperbranched nanocarriers for the transport and release of copper ions

Author affiliations

Abstract

Core–shell and core–multishell nanocarriers were designed to transport copper ions into cells. Herein, we present their synthesis and physicochemical characterization and demonstrate the high influence of their architectures on the loading and release of copper. Their low toxicity may open a new way to balance the Cu-homeostasis in neurodegenerative diseases.
