Self-assembly of stimuli-responsive imine-linked calix[4]arene nanocapsules for targeted camptothecin delivery

Author affiliations

Abstract

Here we report template-free synthesis of imine-linked calix[4]arene hollow nanocapsules and their utility in the effective delivery of a poorly soluble cancer drug into tumor cells. These stimuli-responsive nanocapsules show high drug loading and release which resulted in a 40-fold higher cytotoxicity for breast cancer cell line over normal cells.
