Abstract

The self-assembly of a heptapeptide and phosphotungstic acid into hollow spheres with pH-responsive properties was successfully achieved using a template-free method. The release of the model drug doxorubicin from these spheres was found to be highly pH sensitive, giving them great potential for targeted drug delivery.
