Supramolecular polymeric micelles by the host–guest interaction of star-like calix[4]arene and chlorin e6 for photodynamic therapy

Author affiliations

Abstract

A supramolecular drug delivery system has been developed via the self-assembly of a supramolecular amphiphilic polymer, which is constructed by the host–guest interaction of hydrophilic PEGylated calix[4]arene and hydrophobic photosensitizer chlorin e6. It provides a new strategy for the preparation of supramolecular polymeric micelles, and plays an important role in biological applications.
