Water-dispersible and biodegradable polymer micelles with good antibacterial efficacy

Author affiliations

Abstract

New amphiphilic ABC triblock copolymers have been designed and self-assembled into water-dispersible and biodegradable polymer micelles, which exhibit good antibacterial activities without quaternary ammonium moieties or the loading of any external antibiotics due to the increased local concentration of cationic charge in the polymer micelles compared to the un-self-assembled individual polymer chains.
