Dendron-mediated self-assembly of highly PEGylated block copolymers: a modular nanocarrier platform

Author affiliations

Abstract

PEGylated dendron coils (PDCs) were investigated as a novel potential nanocarrier platform. PDCs self-assembled into micelles at lower CMCs than linear copolymer counterparts by 1–2 orders of magnitude, due to the unique architecture of dendrons. MD simulations also supported thermodynamically favourable self-assembly mediated by dendrons.
