Fabrication of injectable CuS nanocomposite hydrogels based on UCST-type polysaccharides for NIR-triggered chemo-photothermal therapy

Author affiliations

Abstract

Injectable nanocomposite hydrogels containing small copper sulfide nanoparticles (6–8 nm) with a 54.6% photothermal conversion efficiency have been facilely prepared by applying an upper critical solution temperature (UCST)-type biopolymer gellan. This minimally invasive formulation ablates cancer completely in vivo after NIR-triggered chemo-photothermal therapy.
