Near infrared light-responsive and injectable supramolecular hydrogels for on-demand drug delivery

Author affiliations

Abstract

A near infrared (NIR) light-responsive supramolecular hydrogel consisting of α-cyclodextrin and poly(ethylene glycol)-modified dendrimer-encapsulated platinum nanoparticles was developed. Upon NIR irradiation, this hydrogel underwent a photothermo-sensitive degradation to release the entrapped therapeutic agents in an on-demand and dose-tunable fashion.
