Coordination polymer particles as potential drug delivery systems

Author affiliations

Abstract

Micro- and nanoscale coordination polymer particles can be used for encapsulating and delivering drugs. In vitro cancer cell cytotoxicity assays showed that these capsules readily release doxorubicin, which shows anticancer efficacy. The results from this work open up new avenues for metal–organic capsules to be used as potential drug delivery systems.
