Synthesis of calixarene–polyglycerol conjugates and their self-assembly toward nano and microtubes

Abstract

Amphiphilic hyperbranched polymers and copolymers consisting of polyglycerol, polycitric acid and a p-sulfonatocalix[4]arene core (HPCs) were synthesized and characterized. Depending on the composition of AHPs, their self-assembly in aqueous solution led to different nano and microtubes with the ability of encapsulation of anticancer drugs such as curcumin.
