Light-induced molecular rotation triggers on-demand release from liposomes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Controllable molecular release from delivery vehicles is essential to successfully reduce drug toxicity and improve therapeutic efficacy. Light-powered hydrophobic molecular motors were therefore incorporated in liposomes to use molecular rotation to facilitate on-demand release. The extent of the release was precisely controlled by irradiation times, providing a simple yet sophisticated responsive molecular nanocarrier.
