A supramolecular route towards core–shell polymeric microspheres in watervia cucurbit[8]uril complexation

Abstract

Core–shell polymeric microspheres with a cleavable shell were prepared in water using cucurbit[8]uril to bring together functional polymeric microspheres and functional polymers. This supramolecular approach was employed to switch the cytotoxicity of the polymeric microspheres, leading to potential applications in the eradication of cancer cells.
