Emerging strategies in near-infrared light triggered drug delivery using organic nanomaterials

Author affiliations

Abstract

Near-infrared light has significant advantages for light-triggered drug delivery systems within deep tissues. The use of inorganic nanomaterials raises concern over their long-term in vivo toxicities. Here we will highlight emerging near-infrared light-triggered drug delivery using organic nanomaterials, as well as new photocleavage reactions mediated by near-infrared light.
